Artist Statement:

Many people live silently with their mental health, with few understanding the impact it can have. My work visually describes the effects that mental health and psychological conditions can have on an individual. My practice reflects my own realities of living with trauma and mental illness as I investigate the social obstructions and the loss of identity that my illness presents. Painting acts as my therapy, allowing me to escape the stream of anxiety and negative thoughts that I am plagued with.

 

Unable to work around the fumes of oil paint, I have undertaken digital painting techniques, using a graphics tablet whilst studying the techniques of 17th century artists. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary innovation, I bring the work to life through a bespoke lightbox design; the work is printed onto an acrylic panel, backlit by an LED box and framed ready to display.

 

The final stage is sharing the work publicly. It is hoped that through the audience’s engagement with the work, others will have a greater understanding of the impact that mental illness has upon individuals. My overall goal is to challenge perceptions of mental illness, reduce stigma and start new conversations about mental health.
