In this image the Abyss and Innocence are positioned almost level with each other, which gives a feeling of equality. Innocence is also more in the foreground, and therefore larger than the Abyss, which lessens the Abyss’s seemingly ominous presence.
In my personal projects I work with concepts like numbness, bitterness, and/or depression; all states of being I know well. A goal is to raise awareness about the dangers of living in these places—and hopefully help others make better choices than I did. I always believe in hope, even when it seems there might not be any. If there is hope for me there is hope for others; and there is.
