Sarah Yang – Living It Up

Artist: Sarah Yang
Title: Living It Up
Media: Acrylic paint
Grade: 9th grade
School: Miramonte High School
Teacher: Erica Amundson

I started painting this piece at the end of 2020 to summarize my general feelings about this year. I was inspired by a photograph of someone sleeping on a telephone pole and remembered the time a transformer caught on fire outside my house. I feel like we’ve all been sleeping on connection with others and don’t realize the negative effects it has on our mental health.
