The word “albatross” is sometimes used metaphorically to mean a psychological burden that feels like a curse. Each of us carries our own burdens, our own anchors, and our own demons within us. Through my work I seek to create a visual journey through confronting tribulations present within our lives—by attempting to shed the anchors that weigh us down and fight the demons that haunt us, we can achieve measures of transcendence and even tranquility within the chaos.
