A PSYCHOSOCIOLOGICAL DIARY, 2019-2020

ink pen, pastel, pencil crayon

This series is a record of personal narratives and human interactions, most of which are seen through the lenses of mental illness and trauma. These small drawings (~ 9 x 6 cm per drawing) are windows into intimate spaces and their portable nature is a metaphor for the memories I carry, both public and private, beautiful and terrible, harmonious and chaotic, delicate and intense, and light and dark. The body is a site of tension between these dichotomies, and the exterior environment is transformed into a mindspace.  

I created part of this series while living in Scotland.  Here, I carefully document moments of companionship, loneliness, mental illness, faith, and emotion from a transformative year in my young adult life.
