eXpressionist Statement:

The study I based my artwork on is about prescribing medication for ADHD so that children who are diagnosed can be treated properly. My brother has ADHD and my mother has ADD, and I have watched them struggle with finding the right prescriptions.The water being poured into my brother’s head represents how people with ADHD have trouble retaining knowledge; the way the water leaks out of his head, nose, eyes, and mouth illustrates that medication is a necessary help that is needed. In the background, I incorporated questions related to the diagnosis of ADHD.
