Veil chronicles a personal, emotional journey caused by the effects of a prolonged pandemic and moments of social injustices. Volatile social interactions became commonplace in both media and amongst friends. I found myself withdrawing from potentially uncomfortable situations I would otherwise engage in. Constant states of vulnerability and contemplation resulted in building a thin emotional wall to protect my own peace. Over time, a realization of resiliency set in as these drawings became a form of cathartic therapy to search for a nuanced visual reflection of the turmoil that lingered within.
