About this artwork
Triggered is a work that was slowly developed due to multiple influences changing the meaning of the painting, explains artist Asha Hanna. The original inspiration for this piece was a loss in my life at the start of 2020. As I continued to develop the painting, Covid-19 broke out and people were marching in the streets for human rights. I came to the conclusion that the work is a self-reflection on how confused and clouded my mind felt with everything that was going on.
