**Unit 1** Thinking of a new research topic



Including the last year of my undergraduate course, I have been depicting organic and bodily forms for some reason. What I have found is that the forms might have been derived from my health anxiety; hypochondria. Once I feel physical pain, I keep thinking of the symptoms. I assume that the obsession with protecting the body and keeping health leads to a curiosity of my inner body so that I draw winding curves. When it comes to colour, I habitually use a wide range of light tones. Otherwise, I put acrylic glitter or gold pigment to brighten things up. How does physical pain trigger to make beautiful paintings? I guess that this tendency presumably stems from my narcissistic desire to make stunning images that could be attractive to audiences and myself. Therefore, I have decided to research two notions; Hypochondria and Narcissism. Psychiatrically both of them are more or less linked to each other and also related to my unconsciousness.
