Project Title: Mental Health

Within my project, I explored the concept of ‘Mental Health’ through digital manipulation and mixed media. Incorporating ideas predominantly from Edward Honaker and Rosanna Jones, I used a multitude of techniques to support my work. I was able to develop new ways to present the idea of struggle and everyday feelings of a person. Some of these include distortion through application of materials, blurring, fragments, paint and more.

The main focus of my project was to symbolise the importance of mental health, presenting an alternative and new perception of this concept. When deciding on a final piece, I chose to use multiple models to present this idea through paint. I took into consideration technique and colour to link to the idea of mental health along with working at a larger scale.

I am now going onto study History at the University of Chester.
