Drown, 2021 - Alex Beckinsale (she/her)
Digital drawing painted on cotton rag 100 x 150 cm
This work is an exploration of my experience and history with poly-cystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). It is a reflection of moments of vulnerability, where I find myself existing in a state in between comfort and pain. The water that surrounds my figure is deep and dark, cradling it as the uncertainties of the internal world spill over into the external.
