About the artwork:
"To survive this life, you must keep going. With every change thrown your way, you're expected toÂ think fast and adapt. ('Pivot', they all said.) You're expected to let go quickly and grow in ways you never thought you would. The pressure for growth is everywhere and it's exhausting.Â
We're all doing our best right now and that looks different for everyone. For me, this is it. Right now, this is my best. This is all I have. "
