A Brain Storm by Leanne Bell

This piece was created with mental illness and depression as influences; how there is all this chaos going on inside your mind, yet the world can seem dark and muted at the same time. The work is meant to reflect the internal struggle that people deal with, and how it can be messy and chaotic inside the mind of someone struggling, like a turbulent storm. I used dark colours because when you’re suffering from depression, sometimes you find yourself in a ‘dark place’, so this piece encompasses that aspect through the colour scheme. Likewise the phyiscal darkness of it adds to the overall tone of the image, which I wanted to reflect the ‘dark place’.
