This artwork symbolizes the pervasive influence of societal pressures and constraints on our mental health. Vibrant hues depict the richness of our inner selves, yet they are bound by chains of materialism and the pursuit of instant gratification. The narrative conveyed is one where we are conditioned to believe that a simple pill can remedy all our troubles or that owning a luxury item will elevate our status. However, beneath this facade lies a deeper truth—a truth that keeps us subdued and ignorant of our own potential."
