Alhwarrpe // sad, sorry


I wanted to paint what my depression felt like. For so long it was hard to put into words how I was feeling. There was a time it took over my entire life. It it was through my healing journey where I needed to find myself again through my culture. I needed to paint what was going on in my brain on this journey. 


The middle part is my meeting place. It's where the good, the bad and the ugly meet. It's where they all connect and reconnect. But this time they are starting to connect in a different way. My culture is my healing, where all the beautiful people in my life come to save me. It's my belonging.
