In my pieces, I wanted to convey the message of restraint and vulnerability.

 

The intent is to draw the viewer in by using smaller prints, suggesting that some men from specific backgrounds make big issues less significant or pay it off as nothing.

The image I have created displays some of those qualities. Some men hold back their tears; they confuse sadness for anger or get angry because they are sad. They can shut off and give the greatest one-liner ever. “yeh I’m all good, mate” when really, there’s a cyclone of shit going on inside.
