Clara Lieu, Self-Portrait No. 33, etching ink and lithographic crayon on Dura-Lar, 48” x 36”, x 2011. This drawing is from "Falling", a project that is a visualization of my personal experience with depression. The condition brought on frequent episodes where I felt emotionally and physically out of control. After an extended, untreated struggle, a diagnosis brought relief, and the process of unearthing myself from the disease began.

Some say it's laziness but then they don't know what it's like when every day it's just so hard to get out of bed sometimes and face the world and reality. You try with all your might to be productive but tiredness takes over and you just have to sink back to doing nothing. And you feel lazy but you can't help it. We all get tired.
