Through a Glass Darkly
My current abstract works have to do with mental illnesses such as Schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, paranoia, and many other behaviors that are part of the human condition. I find working as an Abstract Expressionist best represents these concepts or ideas, at least for me personally. I have family members and friends who suffer from a variety of illnesses so I have seen first hand how some of these diseases work and how people suffer with them.
Our society seeks to sweep them under the carpet and out of sight. This series says an enphatic no to that negligence. I will express what needs to be expressed. I am not always on the mark, however, I’m always open to my audience for input and accuracy.
