ANXIETY BY AMULYA MALLADI

ANXIETY BY AMULYA MALLADI

ARTIST STATEMENT

Steel yourself. Don’t feel it.
Hide yourself. Don’t show it.
Swallow. Submerge it.
Be less. Be self aware.
Drown the passion.
Tamp the excitement.
Don’t feel the high.
So you don’t feel the low.
Abandon the romance.
Face reality.

THE WHY

I made the "I Feel" series of paintings to let myself feel. In a world where we have to curb it all to be one thing or the other, and still somehow be authentic, these paintings tell my story, tell the snippets, the sagas, the anecdotes, the dreams and the nightmares. With these paintings I not only say how I feel, but also start the journey of accepting how I feel.
