They Came Undone: The unraveling of creative minds

This new series of art features 22 creative geniuses who self-destructed.  Each subject featured is painted in a stylized manner wtih vibrant colors.  The paintings are then hand stitched using  different colored yarn.  The yarn is woven throughout the painting representing the strength and fragile state of each artist.  On the surface they appear vibrant yet under the canvas you see the tangled mess of the yarn.  This represents their inner conflict.  Note that each person is surroucnded by a thin black yarn line symbolizing the darkness that swallowed them.
