Artist’s self portrait surrounded by artist’s fears. Anxiety is shown in the form of a black cat. Lady is holding the cat and not letting it go. Just like anxiety comes and goes suddenly from nowhere. Lady’s figure is surrounded by details referring to child’s fears from the past. Like Chucky Doll and Red balloon represent horror stories and movies. Some places on the canvas haven’t been painted over deliberately referring to unresolved moments in life. Oil and oil paint stick on canvas.
