My art is an evolving exploration of self and psyche as I awaken from dissociative slumber.
A little bit about me
It pieces together fragments of self from a detached perspective as I begin to deal with issues of dissociation, depersonalisation and lifelong hallucinations. My work often deals with themes of self-reflection: the struggle to acknowledge self-worth as well as the challenge to release myself from the choking constraints of mental illness which I previously thought defined who I was.
My choice to work with such a fine implement is analogous to the seemingly endless and somewhat masochistic challenge inherent in expressing with these issues through visual art; a medium of self-expression in which I am confident moreso than written or verbal forms of communication.
My hallucinatory experiences echo the organic characteristics of fungi and other micro-organisms in nature which sparked my interest in macro photography. This not only satiates my love for mycology, myxomycology and entomology through artistic means but helps as a tool to combat mental illness.
It is with great hope that I can inspire others to look underfoot and notice the abundance of life so often unnoticed and unappreciated.
