“The Stain” is a 3D animated piece that emerged from my inner drive to create something deeply meaningful. In a peculiar way, this artwork has become a visual representation of my irrational fears, allowing me to give them shape and form, ultimately aiding in my quest for understanding and acceptance. Through its creation, “The Stain” has transformed into a symbol of personal growth and self-discovery, surpassing the impact of my other works. It delves into the pervasive nature of fear, an emotion inherent in all living beings (perhaps with the exception of geese). While we are encouraged to confront our fears, it’s crucial to acknowledge that fear is a natural survival instinct that has been instrumental in our species’ existence, a truth often overlooked in our modern teachings.
