Art About Pain
In 2013 I started exploring the theme of pain in my artwork, in particular my experience of living with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS). How do you explain pain that is so severe that it takes over your life? Words often seem inadequate but with art I can create a visual language to describe my pain and express my thoughts and emotions. More of my art work relating to pain can be found on my art website.
in February 2014 I had my first 5 day', in hospital, Ketamine infusion. Most of the time I felt slightly spaced out (a side effect of the drug) but it was like a holiday from pain. The drawings and etching above were inspired by my first Ketamine experience.
