This body of work explores the cyclical experience of Bipolar Disorder, using the Greek myth of Persephone’s abduction into the Underworld to represent the emotional shifts that flow and connect into one another. In Greek myth, Persephone spends six months on Earth and the following six in the Underworld on rotation, providing the Ancient Greek explanation for the changing of seasons, as she was the Goddess of Spring. This work focuses on themes of mental health, the impact of abuse on the psyche of youth leading into adulthood and the idea of emotional perpetuity as an illusion.
