From the Artist

Medium: Digital – Raster and vector format

This is the first piece of my three part mental health series, “Psychosis”. It originated as a psychedelic piece to be entered in a themed art show at Insomnia, when I realized that it had alot of visual elements of the experience of psychosis. I then decided to create more pieces like it to make a series of them.

I started this piece painting over an image of my face with bright colors, moving on to creating the overlaying shapes in vector format, and applying them to the piece with a layer effect. I wanted the appearance to be messy to depict the chaos of the condition. I finished with adding a border and contrasting black lines because I felt like something was still missing. It turned out that was what it took to bring the whole thing together.
