White Sound, 2015, acrylic on panel, 5 x 5 x 1 inches
White Noise is about my relationship with misophonia. During a triggering event, often the external world feels both static and deafening at the same time. It is so incredibly overwhelming, and all I can focus on is the sound that causes me so much distress. However, this painting is an attempt to create something visually pleasing and beautiful from events that are so challenging.
