This piece was created after analyzing the intricacies of introspection. This is art about thinking and the intricacies are disjointed when you’re fragmented.
You can indeed think too much. Thoughts speak over one another like they are at a family reunion. One thought begins and another interrupts at the end. When one thinks in a fragmented way, they can hardly string lines of ideas together. They can hardly piece together reality. As if your mind was a puzzle, you try to maneuver the pieces around. But only some sections come together, while others are left completely bare. Art about thinking is as chaotic as the act of thinking itself. This work visualizes the process of interpreting the fragments that come and go within.
Mentally Ill Art illustrates the unraveling of a mind and the lead-up to it’s breakdown. It is not for the light of heart, but for those who have struggled. One who is in the throws of mental illness is caged within their lack of control. Therefore, their moods and perceptions overwhelm their behaviors. In effect, no one sees the person when the illness takes center-stage, bowing as it twirls and nosedives the survivor’s entire life into chaos and destruction. Psychiatric facilities are operating at full capacity as suicidal thoughts are sweeping over humanity. Fear riddles patients who scream and laugh and weep. By visualizing our neurotic symptoms through surreal expressionism, we come to face them. When facing them, we begin a conversation. This conversation leads to healing.
