"'L'appel du Vide' is a French term for that little voice you might hear when standing on a tall cliff that quietly whispers, 'Jump.'

I don't usually title pieces. I feel like putting names on things can give away how I was feeling or what I wanted to convey when I started a piece, something I'd rather leave up to the interpretation of the individual, but this one is an exception.

The initial idea for this piece came from a conversation I had with a friend. I don't remember it word for word, but I'd mentioned the term 'L'appel du Vide' and they seemed to really like the way it sounded, despite its somewhat sinister meaning. Their interest in the term gave me the idea of conveying that emotion through art. I'd initially planned on finishing it and giving them the original on their birthday, but unfortunately we've since ceased contact with each other, and that was largely the catalyst for me finally realizing this piece. I take my friendships rather seriously, and as a result I also take it very hard when those friendships come to an end. This piece -and every other piece in my "Self Portrait" series- have largely been a way of giving myself closure for the whole ordeal."
