Feelings

This series of paintings was inspired by Kymn's work in the field of psychology. While many feelings are commonly discussed in our culture, such as depression, anxiety and anger, the human psyche is resplendent with nuanced expressions of emotional responses to life. These works pay particular attention to the lesser-discussed feelings we share.

More messy feelings. This painting journeys through anger to euphoria, and includes daydreaming as well as seeds of hope being sown in amid despair. 

Discombobulated

Who hasn't felt out of sorts? This state of progressive confusion and disorganization can  lead to circularity of thought and action. Other people usually make this state worse with their subtle - and not so subtle - suggestions designed to inspire "bobulation" (that is, the actions another person wants you to take.)
