My artwork attempts to highlight the dangers of ambition. The dominant figure reaches towards an ideal, while severely neglecting the other aspects of their life, never being able to realise their goal. The figure is basked in warm light from the unrealistic mirror reflection, showcasing an obsession with the dream. Yet, their crumbling, pest-ridden physical surroundings cast a cold blue light, symbolising the depression resulting from high expectations. Today, we are caught in an ever more fast-paced world; the pressure can be overwhelming. I hope my painting can guide others away from a dark path encouraged by a success-driven society.
