‘Aesthetics of Madness’

Give me the strength…
I will never surrender…

No point in asking why anymore…
Am I just a ticking time bomb inside…?

The lump in my throat builds…
Swallowing is impossible now…

Have not been feeling particularly calm today, so anxious, so nervous, my heart keeps pounding…

Media Used: charcoal, ink, acrylic on tinted charcoal paper 18 × 24

I am a graphic designer and fine artist. I am an obsessed designer and compelled artist. I enjoy painting, drawing, creating my own textures and images for my designs. Through my art and designs I hope to awaken raw emotions from the viewer.

    The words and picture fit well together; this is great art and the anxiety comes across yet with it the idea of slow and steady steps along the path that helps one to cope – this is great art because it confronts the thruth of the way things are and in so doing it can take one toward a small step foward – take care Christine

  • Hello my new good friend George. You are truly a heartfelt person. I appreciate your sentiments so much…thank you for seeing my artwork for what it really is, and being so understanding… xoxo’s

    Blue as dream, red as pain…. love and blood, peace and rage… here you express so well the torments of a torn life… strong work Christina !

  • thank you…I have been feeling compelled and obsessed as of late to just draw and paint. It’s hard to resist the urges as I have so much work to do for school…I have a 120 page research paper due tomorrow, a website due tomorrow, and several other projects due. As well as my daughters day to day needings…The more stress and anxious I feel, the more I want to draw and paint…..and the more intense it is….

    Your poem and painting are living truths. Pain a truth as much as joy – both working to hone and clairify the deep soul of you. It feels like you are living within the strength of your art.
