Clara Lieu, lithographic crayon on Dura-Lar. This drawing is from "Wading", a project that presents the most severe form of isolation as loneliness that is experienced when physically surrounded by other people. The presence of others is what can intensify the experience of loneliness for an individual. These works depict figures wading in an infinite and undefined body of water. I visually portray loneliness as the experience of feeling unseen and unknown within a group.
