Self-portraits as therapy.
My distinctively dark and evocative self-depictions intimately reflect my ongoing struggle with mental health. The photographs manifest within the same four walls; my bedroom. The room I believe is the keeper of my trapped and repressed emotions. To bury this mental state deep within would allow it to thrive, but though my use of photography as therapy; I am offered a cathartic release. Most notably my work has been included in 'Traumascapes and Landscapes of the Interior' at The Institute of Mental Health, 'Prescriptions' at The Beaney Museum of Art and Knowledge and 'Space' a young artist exhibition at TATE Liverpool. My work also forms part of the University of Kent’s ‘Artist’s Books and the Medical Humanities' Collection.
