2012. XANAX was an expression of my physical and mental state. When I started this series, I was dealing with anxiety and panic attacks, and was prescribed Xanax for a week. I felt as if I was floating in another world and not really myself, unable to deal with vibrant color. What emerged instead were these ghost-like disembodied figures. These paintings have a quality of there-but-not there, just like my mind.
