Demise. self portrait. ink and photoshop.
I created a reflection piece after playing The Last of Us
, which sums up my inner thoughts and emotions as to the direction society seems to be taking. We’re heading towards dystopia, to the fall of humanity, and part of me is content - wipe the slate clean - and part of me is terrified of the outcome - the worst of humanity is yet to rise.
We are our own demise.
I wanted the viewer to understand the emotions I was feeling as I was painting this, what it symbolises, and so I put the image to a piece of music from TLOU soundtrack that is so emotionally stirring and heartbreaking and yet has that small glimmer of hope. This track - All Gone (Aftermath) literally brings me to tears. You can listen to the track on my tumblr here: mudg3t.tumblr.com/post/6159783…
