100 Expressions: Martha Iler

Title: “Anguish”

Medium: Mixed Media/Acrylic on Canvas

Narrative: Depression and anguish are often brought on by exhaustion, by fear of the unknown, and by finding that the ideals of life are not as sure as they once were. In creating this piece, I allowed myself to apply the medium without thought and without plan, only responding to my emotions. When finished, I realized that though my “Anguish” encompassed me, it had not swallowed me. The center of my soul was still intact, though ragged and torn around the edges.
