A submission under the WINGS theme:

Angel by Amy Chesterman

  Title:  Angel

  Medium:  Acrylics on canvas board, rose gold mica added to           wings with acrylic gloss topcoat

  Size: A3

  Theme:  Wings




Amy (37) from the Braintree Rethink Art Group says:  Art has helped me – having a creative outlet for feelings and emotions that are difficult to express. I’ve since found out childhood trauma can effect how you cope later on in life when you need to cope as an adult, I never got out of survival mode when learning emotional regulation in my early years and struggle with emotion disregulation now. 


A submission under the theme FOCUS

The Colours of Madness by Minna

  Title: The Colours of Madness

  Medium:  Acrylic on canvas

  Size:  30cm x 40cm





This is a first contribution from Minna (29) from London.  Minna says:  I painted this to represent my thoughts and feelings whilst I was going through a dark patch of depression and had been admitted to a psychiatric hospital. I remember feeling lost, alone, scared and hopeless, like I was on a different planet to everyone and everything else. I felt like I was watching the world going by from afar – a world that was unfamiliar and foreign to me, with people I did not recognise and places I had never been to before. I could see the different colours and nebulous shapes of life and objects, all moving around and being sucked into a black hole of hopelessness. I remember feeling like I was standing on the edge of an obscure planet, unsure of where I was, what I was seeing and what I was supposed to do.

Going through a mental health crisis can feel overwhelming, terrifying, confusing, strange, lonely and deserting, which this painting tries to depict. Art provides a channel to allow one to escape these dark thougths and a conduit to communicate with the outside world in a powerful and unique way.


Another submission under the theme STRENGTH

Hidden Strength by Raven

  Title: Hidden Strength

  Medium:  Watercolour brush pens on watercolour paper

  Size:  A4





As a regular contributor since the Project’s inception here Raven says: Sometimes our past is our hidden strength that is invisible on the surface that’s why it is so important to share it, so people can see how far you’ve come on this journey of life.  We grow through what we go through sums it up simply.
