Statement

My body of work portrays the struggle one can have with mental health. The mind can be a place of captivity and leave you feeling trapped within a hopeless head space. While researching I learned the alarming numbers of men and woman that lose their fight with depression within Ireland each year. I wanted to open the topic for discussion through my visual representation of this feeling of entrapment that depression can hold over people. The piece shows how struggling with your mental health can leave you feeling like you’re abandoned, caged, and suffocated.
