Sweet Tooth, 2024

Sweet Tooth, 2024, mixed media on canvas. 2'x2' 
Sweet Tooth was a piece that centred around a poem. It highlights the bittersweetness of life, the ways we trade our time for our pleasure and the way we sway between the pendulum of grief and joy. There are subtle themes of morality, or what is considered 'good' or 'bad' and the way we interpret our experiences as consequences of these perceptions. 
The poem written across the canvas is:
Life is sweet
like pulling teeth
like pulling grief out from under me
like without a doubt
I'm just trying to be good.
