They drive us to despair, slowly and with pleasure inject their poison and thrust their claws, causing fears, melancholy, apathy, cruel and hurting thoughts, self-flagellation and enormous sense of guilt with insecurities, doubts, emotional vulnerabilities. Behind a mask of a smile, burning, squeezing feeling of a helmet on your head, sucking emptiness in the soul, thoughts bringing dreadful pain. Demons destroy us by our own hands, through our desires and thoughts, words and acts, they are an integral part of us as well as we are part of them. The work shows a person with an inner demon that is decomposing in the darkness, till there is no skin to one with open flesh on the surface and only a shivering flower of hope keeps the head floating.
