‘The Eyes are the window to the soul’

"Even when your getting beaten up by the thoughts in your head there is usually a place, person, or a thing that you can go to to get your mind away from the stresses of the day or the week. My piece portrays that because when I look at myself in the mirror, with my bloodshot eyes from all the crying, I find a way to escape everything. When I look into my girlfriend’s eyes I always get lost and I start to feel better. The square of wood has marks on it and nails all around the square going into it to show the pain. This portrays resilience because, even when I’m feeling terrible I find myself lost in my girlfriend’s eyes that create a more perfect world for me. "
