OVERLOADED (2022) – 60 cm x 60 cm – Acrylic painting on canvas

Although I didn’t know it at the time, I had 30 litres of excess fluid in my body as my kidneys weren’t working as they should and weren’t processing the urine needed to expel it. I had fluid in my lungs, fluid in my feet and ankles, fluid in my legs, fluid in my abdomen, fluid in my right hand and arm, and fluid in my face. Overloaded with fluid, blood pressure was through the roof.

The excess fluid was the equivalent of 15 x 2-litre cola bottles in my body.
