This painting, which is featured in Renfrew's Art Calendar, is about how eating disorders cloud the mind to hide mental pain and negative emotions. From the artist, 'after a history of abuse, my eating disorder served as a means of survival – it was something that I could hold on to. Once I entered recovery, I realized my eating disorder was a monster that I had to battle in order to save my life.'
