2016 Finalists

Phaedra BARNES

Artist statement: Anxiety has become a quiet 'epidemic' of the 21st century. The statistics for anxiety seem to be varied, perhaps affected by apprehension from those with anxiety to talk openly about their experience.

Jess remembers the first time anxiety met her. An experience that shook her and scared her, it changed who she was and she feels she will never be the same again. Navigating life is now made a little harder, and she never knows when ‘it’ will be there, and if she can conquer it. Living with anxiety is one of the hardest things she has had to deal with.
