About the Artwork:
“Every survivor in our society will say they have but a few persons they can cling their heart onto. We all know the need to adapt to survive. Sometimes sacrificing a few pieces of the humanity we have left, changing for the sake of advancing life forward. Often times we also leave someone behind.
We do what is necessary, but is it really worth leaving someone from their side, just to keep living alone without anyone we care about? The choice in life is always simple, but the decision we have made never was.” – Bobby Leash
