This series of drawings explores the feelings of loneliness and anxiety associated with the transition from youth to adulthood. As I grow older, there is an expectation that I will gain more confidence and have a solid control on what I want to do and accomplish. Yet at this age, my confidence level seems to be plunging lower and lower, as I am always anxious of others think of me. I constantly feel I am unable to speak my mind for the fear of others judging me for every thought or statement I make and I am especially fearful to speak my mind to those who are closest to me. Thus these pieces illustrate my thoughts of utter hopelessness in many situations where I may have said the wrong thing or did something to inconvenience those around me. Just like how ostriches stick their heads in the sand to hide from their surroundings, I am also trying to hide from the outside world by sticking my own head into various openings. The ostrich may perceive itself as invisible to others but in reality the outside world can see the bird perfectly fine. No matter how hard I try to hide away, these containers are all too small and in the end I am still exposed to those around me.
