Everybody's Watching Me
Inspired by The Neighbourhood’s song “Everybody’s Watching Me”, this piece is representative of the struggle Kayla has with being vulnerable as well as the immense paranoia she feels from the pressure put on her by those around her. It also addresses Kayla's feeling of needing to keep up a persona. She feels like she can’t truly be at peace being herself and has to conform to an image that people have of her.
Using a contorted digital painting of her own eyes in this digital painting symbolizes that Kayla is essentially her own worst enemy. It feels like everyone is watching her but at the end of the day, Kayla puts the most pressure on herself and she must deal with that on her own.
