Original artwork description:

"Summer" is the name of the young woman in the painting and I found it fitting to use her name as the title as it gives the piece a personal touch. Like "Summer" I know each of the people in the pieces I have done, and this adds to my aim of centring the individual and their experiences within the context of society as the focal point. This leads me to an interesting thought experiment, if you are in a room and each person talks about "societal expectations" and the travesty thereof and the "fault of society" it then begs the question. As the people within that room constitute society to what degree have they become enamoured with the mass and forsaken the single point, them, the individual the forms the core skeleton of society.
