Visual Art: Pattern of Blue Days
The Pattern of Blue Days is a conceptual visual artwork exploring creativity and depression. It is a geometric abstract work using chalk pastel pencil on black paper.
The composition of the image is a series of geometric shapes, lines, rectangles, circles and triangles.
The colour palette is blue and orange/red. Vertically the image is divided into three, a centre ‘panel’ dominated by blue, flanked by left and right-hand panels coloured in orange/red. Across the bottom horizontal of the image is a rectangle divided in two. Here, the colours of blue and orange/red are mixed.
The central ‘panel’ represents the Blue Day, the feeling of depressive states but surrounded by accessible and proximate positive energies.
The boundary lines through the image seem to prevent the Pattern of the Blue Day from being easily interrupted.
- From the project A Topology of Nothingness, a series of visual art pictures created using art therapy and meditations on mental health and wellbeing, using several methods of free expression including drawing, painting, and conceptual photography. The body of work is a reflection on mental health, depression and the trap of negative thinking and hopelessness.
