MANIPULATION

With the utilisation of messy lines, this piece shows the connectivity of everything and how stress, a person, or other factors can affect a person’s wellbeing. Although it is difficult, it is important for us to feel confident about having control over our lives and at the same time, understand that feelings with the loss of control are acceptable. In this piece, I’ve used the lines to portray the complexity of emotions within people, as well as different colours to illustrate the different attitudes people hold towards the feeling of being manipulated. The blue figure symbolises the groups of people who have already become numb and oblivious to the loss of control, and the red symbolises those who try their best to regain control in most aspects of their lives.
