I am pleased to announce that one of the paintings in my “Mental Health” series is featured in this online exhibition, which you can visit here.
CONNECTIONS is a collection of artwork and scientific images that portrays aspects of neuroscience, brain diseases and mental health disorders, and their intersections with art and life. This collection was born from a desire to build links among the scientific community at the Neuroscience and Mental Health Institute (NMHI) at the University of Alberta, patients with neurological and mental health disorders and the community at large. The purpose of our efforts is to display the beautiful connections that exist among our brain cells; to weave together the threads that bridge neuroscience research, clinical care, and recovery from brain diseases and mental health disorders; to amplify the warm, inspiring, healing power of art; and most importantly, to highlight our human connections.
Much of my more recent work involved using water-based oil paints (yes, that is a thing – and it makes cleaning up a lot easier!) on canvas and other media. Many of these are available for purchase through R Studio Home Gallery.
