Consumption of the Hopeful, 2016

White and black ink on grey paper
9” x 12”

Consumption of the Hopeful specifically reaches out to those who have felt as if they were drowning, and just as they believed they had received help, realized it wasn’t what they had hoped for, or needed.  Societally, mental health struggles are misunderstood.  We give labels such as “insane” or “crazy” to those who just need to be considered human beings.
