"He left them with high hopes..."
"too high for me to reach..."
This art piece is about Kris, and is actually quite sad.
There's been this thing going on about Kris having issues due to Asriel leaving, and I decided to take that in a way that I find more... unique.
Instead of Kris missing Asriel, society (Their town) is drowning Kris with their expectations since Asriel was their Golden Boy, and Kris was supposedly supposed to be as good as him.
For decoding the abstractness, the "water" is actually the embodiment of society overestimating Kris, and how Kris feels that they disappointed everyone, and is now feeling suffocated in their sadness and anxiety.
Goes very deep, as all abstract pieces should.
This may not actually be the case, but it's just how Kris interprets it.
And yes, they're a female in this piece.
