“Bandaging My Eternal Mind" is a fine art piece that explores the life of Van Gogh. As an artist with a psychiatrist as a father, I too see a reflection of myself in the eyes of Van Gogh. This Winter I was getting frustrated that all I was doing was dyeing fabric, my dad on the other hand had just saved a man’s life. I said, "Sometimes what I do seems so pointless and trivial.” His response was, “Yes I helped a man out today, but without art and design none of us would be able to see the beauty of this painful world.” I invite you to explore where pain and beauty sit together and form an unbreakable bond.
