Artist’s statement

For all of my life I have been drawn to the Titanic. The way that something so vast in strength can be taken over by something as simple as frozen water; the way that strength is conquered by weakness. I took this idea and applied it to my own life, seeing many similarities between the ship and myself: between the iceberg and my last school year. As the pressure of school rose up, friends quickly began to fall out, causing havoc, and when too much pressure builds, you break.
