Communication Breakdown

Communication Breakdown” depicts a woman trying to speak but stopped by a slash of dripping white paint. The piece is inspired by the gradual and heart-wrenching process of losing a loved one to Alzheimer's disease, and the gradual breakdown of communication. At first it’s barely noticeable but the conversations get stranger and less coherent over time until communication fails. The piece tries to capture that moment when the verbal connection is gone but you can still see in their eyes the yearning to connect.
