Artist's Description

This was sheer frustration and anger at being confined. I often felt isolated and paralysed- unable to express myself- and this picture was an explosion of rage onto canvas.

I felt as though all that i had gone through in life was pointless and that hospital, was compounding, in some ways, the original problems by taking away an individuals right to exist.

often there was a great deal of humour on the ward, and a great spirit of comaradery , which bonded us..and kept us going.there were times of sheer boredom and times of intense rage…being locked up and given drugs you don’t want is not fun!

This paitning was done after 3 nights and three days without sleep…i was told i wass hyper- manic…it turned out it was the mediction itself….once that stopped, so did the mania!

Ironically..they actaully displayed this image on the ward…i left it as a present lol
