Borderline art shows the theatrics of the up and down of relationship perception.
Borderlines know just how to push your buttons. They don’t just want your attention, they absolutely need it. They will do anything to get it. This is what it looks like from the outside. But in the inside, they are battling the negative and positive waves of thoughts and emotions. Each side within this work show the polarizing personalities within the one person. So many misunderstandings arise due to conflicting perceptions of reality. The question always remains, “do they love me or hate me?” And it is this thought that keeps us chained. This borderline art suggests you walk your own path, a path that acts like a tightrope between the two personalities.
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.
