CollageMania, 202225cmX25cm

I use abstract art to channel my experiences of unusual psychological phenomena, for example hallucinations, mood swings, dissociation and flashbacks. This piece describes my experience of “mania” or “high mood”. In this state I have an excess of energy, and a love of colour and texture. However, in this state I also make artwork that some people find too gaudy to be appreciated as “real art”. Then there’s the bitter paranoia that each episode of my mania ends up in… You can maybe see that stage of it coming in the artwork…
