What Was Built

Oil on Canvas // 2014

"What Was Built" looks at the concept of a tent, or other structure designed to protect one physically. This tent is designed to protect one emotionally, it is worn and torn more drastically as I give the tent the emotions and pains I need it to take. It a a tent built from my thoughts and feelings. What was built was a protectant layer emotions that only exists because those very same emotions built it; a constant cycle.
