Original artwork description:

Three mysterious tribal figures occupy the lower tier of this mezzanine interior scene, compositionally split in quarters. The figures enter through the bright portal in the bottom right corner. Pass through to the bottom left, where a shadowy figure waits behind the ladder to the upper tier. The ladder leads directly to a chair, precariously set facing into the scene with no space around it. Leaning past the chair into the top left corner, a figure in a simple long garment, attends to a chore. Dead centre in the top half, the shadow of a growing thing but only the suggestion of the thing itself. In the top right corner, the bedstead, set into the space with its head disappearing off in the direction of the portal through which the shadowy figures ingress. This painting is about bad mental habits, poor mental health and patterns of self-depreciating behaviour, and how hard that pattern is to break... and also how easy it is to ignore the problem.
