A time, a place

This painting is the first in one of four in a series of other paintings. This particular piece is called "a time, a place". The painting features many different techniques of mixed-media, including stamping, embossing and pasting. I painted it in the summer of 2016. The school year had been horrible. I was tormented by bullies at school. I couldn't take it. I started hurting myself, and also the people around me. The painting represents a version of me, a part of my personality. A happy person, living a care free life. Suddenly bad things start to happen to him. He is in constant agony. The painting represent him, on the verge of falling into a dark pit. A pit of self hatred, insecurity. A pit full of darkness. He hasn't fallen into the pit yet, but soon, he will. He still has some happiness inside of him, but soon, he'll be full of nothingness.
