I create these as I sit and the pain is racking my body. I watch the strokes appearing without any concern for how it turns out. This relaxes me and takes my mind off the pain.
Notice the shards of implied line shooting thru the middle of the work. It’s a lot like “automatic writing.”
This art is a courtesy of PainExhibit.org, an online educational, visual arts exhibit from artists with chronic pain who use art to express some facet of the pain experience.
The Pain Exhibit’s mission is to educate healthcare providers and the public about chronic pain through art, and to give voice to the many who suffer in silence.
Pain Exhibit recently launched its new Spanish language website at PainExhibit.org/es.
