Disassociated by ShannC
This painting to me refers to dissociative disorder, as always depicted in a vibrant way and as someone who knows about mental illness, there is a pathetic amount of knowledge and understanding and concern of the matter. It is my hope that one day it isn't so stigmatized and people can feel free to be more open about it and not to feel like a burden on society as they have been made to feel.

ShannC's Profile Picture
Artist | Traditional Art
I started drawing more seriously about a year ago. I was just never dedicated enough to keep at it, but now it's very all consuming. I have a great hunger to learn more and I am searching out artists to learn from..but given my current situation, I am only able to draw from feeling. Being so new to the whole experience, I find that it is daunting to put one's self out there. Right now I am just learning on my own and going by instinct. My art mostly focuses on suffering and most times has an air of depression to it as i have had to deal with these all my life. I would describe my stuff as body dysmorphic in a way.
For many years i was just focused on fitness and personal training but it definitely has taken a bit of a back seat and I am extremely focused on this and making it my own.

I prefer contemporary art..something a little off putting and off centre. I am very inspired by street art, very bold and colourful with nothing to hide..just is what it is.
I choose to depict pain and suffering in a bright and characteristic style.

I know your work Foresight is not stock but I dared to use it because it just ideally fit  my idea and the background becoming the center of my dark image. I want your opinion but if you object to my using it , I"ll remove it.
 All the best Gali
