How can the traumatic issue of suicide be expressed in art? It’s a question that artist Carly Jones has been answering over the past two years.
Her MA art project took a complete change of direction when a family member took his own life. This suicide had a severe impact on the whole family and in particular Carly’s partner Damon.
He found himself re-experiencing a severe episode of PTSD and struggling with his mental health. Both Damon and Carly found significant relief when they came across the Inside Out understanding.
Carly’s art project is an exploration between the stark, sad statistics of suicide, along with the hopeful message of innate wellbeing and resilience.
