Life with no appetite is a drag. This hungry art expresses the skeletal frame that becomes of a body that depletes itself of life force.

One can lose their appetite due to feeling too much or too little. It is the mixed up people who create hungry art, looking to be filled in so many ways…but not with food. It just doesn’t suit the appetite. Starving yourself can have detrimental effects. It increases fatigue as there is nothing being consumed to energize the body. Your body grows weak and dizzy. Sometimes, loss of appetite is a symptom of something else, maybe a mental or physical change, or maybe a sign of pregnancy. It can increase levels of depression and anxiety, sending your emotions in a volatile direction. Hungry art is not for the wealthy, it’s for the wilting.

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.
