Demonstrating with the lack of colorful, vivid emotions inside of a person, the two-part series of “Raining SSRI’s” depicts the isolation and drained feelings an individual suffering from the chemical imbalance caused by depression can produce. A great number of people in society are mislead when being informed of what depression can actually feel like and what the symptoms are. There is no mass generalization that covers every diagnosed person and therefore, every case is unique and has different effects. The isolation a diagnosis can cause is depicted strongly by the artist with the body highlighted in shades of black and white, surrounded by a powerful, bright background, indicating the subject is distinctly contrasting in general society. This notion that having depression equates to the impending death of a soul, is just as damning as the actual effects depression has on an individual.
“Raining SSRI’s” (Part 2) is painted in contrasting detail with painting knives, giving the large work a textured finish that captures the light in a unique way when hung appropriately. When paired with the original “Raining SSRI’s” (Part 1), the two large works stand out beautifully in a dedicated collector’s display of original artwork. Though intended to be matched to the original, this piece can also be showcased alone and bring attention all by itself as well.
The piece is presented on a 1.5″ deep-edged, heavy duty, gallery-wrapped canvas, with the edges painted black to ensure a polished finish. Ready to hang.
