Paranoid art must be created in a way that shows the viewer how impeding the eyes of others can be.
In this work, you see how the eyes surround this wounded warrior. Paranoia encapsulates him and whichever way he turns, he feels the eyes upon him. He hears people whispering and plotting. His fears become monsters. This work of paranoid art depicts the sensation of being watched and thought about by others. It’s the growing knowing that they are out to get you, they want to see you fail, they want to see you fall. Within a paranoid paradigm, the person’s paranoia creates a dreary and bleak reality.
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.
