In my artwork, I’ve tried to capture the true nature of the life experiences of the working poor and the innate helplessness that goes along with that title. The piece entitled The Debt I Drown In deals with the suffocating nature of debt and collections and explores how one deals with these on an emotional level. The piece entitled What I Amount To explores the transient nature of life as a member of the Working Poor and emphasizes the psychological impacts of debt showing how the numbers that rule your purse can ultimately take over your life. These pieces are a visual description of the transient experience, the life of a passer-by, always seeing joy from the outside in, never receiving the fruits of their labors.
