Artwork of Sophia Cannariato
My artwork has deep connection with my emotions. I use mediums such acrylic paint and pencil sketches to channel my inner psyche into a healthy outlet. Incorporating inanimate objects and personifying them to express my anxieties about things such; time, insomnia, mental stability and chaos. I would characterize my work as semi-realist with abstract qualities to demonstrate my experience with feeling out of control. People have described my work as the stuff from fever dreams, or sleep paralysis nightmares. I channel my difficulties being haunted by my own mind and turn them into images that are illustrative of that reality. my goal in creating these pieces is to convey my struggles with depression and anxiety to an audience that may not know how to communicate their own struggles.
