A Drowning Society by FMAFREAK8
A Drowning Society
Anorexia Nervosa is a mental disorder, one of which that can lead to the death of the sick. A Drowning Society expresses a girl drowning in her illness of Anorexia Nervosa. A hand is grasping and dragging the girl down deeper into the ocean, killing her; just like an eating disorder will, metaphorically speaking. The hand represents societies perceptions of women, tempting young girls to become the unrealistic image expressed by media within the world. 
In my point of view, Anorexia Nervosa, as well as any other eating disorder, is caused by societies unrealistic or so called ‘perfect’ image of a woman. Woman are imperfect, they can be of any shape, any size and still be beautiful. Any eating disorder is a mental illness, it is not a way of life. No one chooses to live in that way, they live to be accepted by the society surrounding them. 
(This is my point of view of this mental issue and im sorry if I offend anyone)

a beautiful world filled with blood and lust by FMAFREAK8
a beautiful world filled with blood and lust

Pierre Troubetzkoy once said “Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by what is above him when he shows no mercy to what is below him?”, expressing how humans wish for a superior being to answer their dreams and wishes, even when they are cruel to many of the inferior living organisms. Humans think they are the superior beings, the only species on earth that deserves respect and dignity. Instead of respecting the lives of the other living organisms which also deserve the same respect and dignity of a human person, humans kill them. Kill them for their horns, feathers, tusks, fur, meat, skin, organs and bones especially an animal’s skull.

My art piece represents the poaching of animals. In my piece the animals are doing the same act which humans do to them today. The animals is poaching the human. My piece represents how the world is beautiful, but the world is also filled with the killing of all animals and the lust for humans to steal and take the 'beautiful' fur off the animals. 

The animals are drawn in graphite pencil. The use of the graphite pencil allows the background and the middle ground to become almost one. The graphite allows the animals to blend into the background, almost as if they don’t exist. In turn commenting on that the animals are on the brink of extinction due to the humans actions. The graphite pencil also expresses that the animals are a figment of the imagination, that they are not really there but instead in the back of ones mind. The animals presence expresses the animals is the object in danger, not the human.

The human girl is made out of a collage of photos of animals that have been poached and the products that are resulted from this poaching. These photos are the inspiration for my art piece. To put forward an issue within society that needs to be acknowledged and that society needs to stop animal cruelty to save the endangered and soon to be extinct animals.
