For my solo show at Stir Coffee I made 8 new paintings examining my experiences with mental health. When you are unwell your entire perception becomes warped, everyday objects become symbols for the illness. The title of the show is ‘Still Life’ for three reasons: 1. These are still life paintings. 2. Living with mental illness is like swimming through treacle. 3. You have to keep going anyway.
