MAKING ART ABOUT MENTAL ILLNESS

We've been going through a lot of learning about mental illness in our family, and it's certainly not pleasant. I hope that as more light is shined on various forms of mental illness, that it will become a condition which is treated with the care and dignity of other illnesses.

 

This painting is a digital collage of many images: a digital version of a watercolor of mine, and photos of various places which have been important in a loved one's life. I hope that it shows both the tragedy of schizophrenia when it destroys families, and hope for the future. Maybe some day a diagnosis of schizophrenia or bipolar disorder or depression will not be the horrible sentence that it is these days.
