Cranium I (2 Pieces)
Original mixed media acrylic, pencil, and ink. Roughly 8x11". Comes with both pieces. The second piece is a little smaller.
It is an abstraction of Brain form and pattern as a way of calling attention to two different things. First, to represent the chaos that occurs in the process of creation, but the simultaneous harmony. Second, it is to represent the feeling of depression and anxiety specifically, acting together. There is a grittiness and a chaos to it, but a weight too. I never have been good at putting it in words but I am trying to allow it to inform my artistic process and to be transparent about my own struggles with mental illness in my art.
