Bonds of enmeshed relationships know no boundaries and it is not an easy task to untangle them. Self-identity is poorly formed and it is the relationship that defines the individual caught up in parental needs. The limits are so porous that feelings and thoughts are imbibed almost naturally. It can even get toxic, which is determined by the degree of parental involvement and level of control over individual's life. Insight into its dynamics is poor. Intertwined and engulfed in the emotional ties, the person is lost in an arbitrary world of pseudo-feelings, loses sight of others and eventually loses himself. In the painting, the arcs in different colors represent various emotions and ideas that are shared, the fragile mesh represented in black separates this unique bond from the outside world and the background in peach is individual's space that is hardly visible.

It surely makes one ponder if these minds ever try to break free to enjoy autonomy and freedom of thought and expression or are they just living a personal myth? - Art by Dr Sravanti Sanivarapu
