“I don’t want to be at the mercy of my emotions. I want to use them, to enjoy them, and to dominate them.”
― Oscar Wilde
Emotions are probably some of the most complex aspects of what makes one human. Not always being dreamy or loving, they help release some of our most internal state of thoughts and desires. Now more than ever, owing to an ongoing and dark period in the history of life, there is a need for communities to come together and reassure each other about the positive sides in life, the more optimistic goals to achieve as we move ahead.
I have always held mental health as a vital ingredient to a fruitful life. If we were to compare our happier times with reluctant and sad ones, we all can say that in a pandemic situation where we found ourselves trapped, the former is what brought light to us and helped us pave our ways through situations. In this series, I try to sum up some of the more positive emotions and my interpretations through my art.
