MODEL OF THE PSYCHE

MODEL OF A PSYCHE

"There are many individuals who are unable to verbalise their psychological pain, or feel they don’t have a justifiable reason for it. These feelings aren’t always valued in the same way as physical pain because they cannot be seen. With this work, I strive to create something visceral which gives a face to the invisible power of psychological pain.

Vulnerability can be mistaken for weakness and, as a result, people may feel the need to bury it and hide behind a persona. But it’s through truth and vulnerability that we are able to empathise and connect."
