From the artist:
I was feeling overwhelmed by my life so I took a walk to Nonsuch Park to sit under a tree. I have been coming to this park since I was born and it is a friend to me. A couple sat down on the grass not far from me and I sat and drew for the next hour. As I drew, I thought about how I came to be in this environment because I wanted to be alone, yet they were here together, sharing it with each other. In my drawing, I wanted to explore what it feels like to be alone even in the company of other people. As an autistic person, I often experience being in the company of people but feeling separate. In social situations this can make me feel sad and frustrated but here I was choosing isolation as a positive means of healing for myself.
