This artwork signifies the feeling of trying to hide away the true feeling and identity of myself. Living in this judgemental society, I tend to fit into other people’s perceptions, and try to hide my inner characteristics. Going for a surrealistic approach, the positive looking mask illustrates the personality I’ve been showing out in public while the sad crying face shows the inner negative feeling held within me, thinking about stress and the little time for my upcoming high stakes examinations. The dissolved bird origami at the back signifies the feeling of losing my freedom and hope living in this society.
