Digital Art - Painting - Digital
Created as a commentary on stress associated with life in modern society.
Less job security, a demeaning job application process, increasing demands from employers, unforgivable student loan debt, housing prices being artificially propped up by bank's withholding a large inventory of foreclosed homes, and reduced government protections from oppressive business practices are just some of the increasing number of factors causing overwhelming despair and depression from frustration and a sense of being trapped with limited opportunities.
In addition, over-processed low nutrition foods, high levels of caffeine, rising costs, lower wages, and increasing demands from family and friends and you have a recipe for what's illustrated in this picture...a melt down!
The fallen chess king as well as the positioning of the subject at the edge of the chess board are allegorical making the statement "game over" for someone already "on the edge". Hand painted digitally using the GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).
