About Self-Pity Party
This series is inspired by the lasting feeling of loneliness while in love. I’m exploring a pattern composed of five stages I go through in order to fall in love yet still feel lonely in those scenarios.
These stages tell a part of the story and this narration is explored further in five songs I made for each stage/ painting. To celebrate the indulgence in self-pity I called the Project «Self-Pity Party».
The different stages are as follows: It starts with «The Idea Of Love», the imaginary creation of a personality and the idealization of a love interest, soon followed by «Desire». Then comes the idea of a «Savior», the idea that half of ourselves is incomplete unless we find a person made for us.
With the realities of being in a couple comes «Bored with love» and finally, the inevitable ending with the song and painting «Cry Baby».
