This is a piece conceived out of emotion. It is evoking a mental state of the idea of “holding it together." The chaos of the ink and texture shows the chaos of how it can feel to be slowly unraveling. The piece is in two pieces; rather than coming apart, the obsessive stringing of the thread holds the piece together. This is representational of the concentration it can take for one to in fact “hold it together.” The piece is pulled taught, it is at its physical capacity.
