Meet The Artists:

Emma Morrissey BA – Emma is a business owner from Southampton & is very pleased to debut her latest collection of original paintings & prints, the collection is a direct representatin of her struggles with Anxiety over the years, with each piece demonstrating the various stages that her Anxiety would take.

“These pieces are my representation of what each stage of one of my Pnic Attacks looks like if it was to have an image linked to it, the colours used, the technique & the style of the work is all relevant to the subject & has been a very personal creative journey in creating these pieces, I hope that these pieces will give others who are struggling, a positive outlook on what can be created out of a difficult situation” Emma Morrissey 2017′

Emma has chosen Mental Health charity ‘MIND’ she will be giving a percentage of any sales to Solent Mind.

 

David Vane:

David Vane is better known as founder/director of SBGN, a company that has helped over 200 people to start their businesses. David says that he has not considered himself an artist but new techniques and technology have enabled him to express his view of the environment in different ways. David was moved to contact The Alzheimer’s Society after hearing several programmes on the radio about the struggles of carers and people who have dementia and he wanted to find a practical way to support research.

Please come along & show your support for local Artists & remember, any Art sles on the day will be helping to raise funds for charity.

Anxious Over Art – Content Creative

In the run-up to my upcoming Art Exhibition ‘Anxious Over Art’ in St Michael’s Square in Southampton on Sept 28th, I will be posting some details on some of the works you can expect to see & their meaning.

Anxious Over Art? So what is it? Well, this Exhibition is a reflection of the battles I have faced with Anxiety & Panic attacks, each painting depicts my visual of what each of these stages would look like if you could see them in colour.

Content Creative –

This piece was the first in the collection to be created, it was the most fun as the process of these paintings was completely new to me, the creation of the ‘Cells’ in the pieces was & is still very exciting, this piece represents me on a good day, a happy piece of Art, my anxiety is low, my creativity is high, so the colours used are very bright & vivid, the patterns are more uniform but have a playful quality. Want to hear more, come along on Sept 28th & see these pieces in person & hear the Artist talk about her work from 12pm.

Anxious Over Art – Bright

Flow –

This piece of Art is my personal favorite from the Collection, the bright colours chosen for it are symbolic of the rush of energy that occurs after the anxiety attack has gone, for me, this is a rush that happens due to my fear of not knowing when it may come back so I have a sudden urge to get as much done as possible whilst I can, before the anxiety or panic sets in again.

Anxious Over Art – Settling

In the run-up to my upcoming Art Exhibition ‘Anxious Over Art’ in St Michael’s Square in Southampton on Sept 28th, I will be posting some details on some of the works you can expect to see & their meaning.

Anxious Over Art? So what is it? Well, this Exhibition is a reflection of the battles I have faced with Anxiety & Panic attacks, each painting depicts my visual of what each of these stages would look like if you could see them in colour.

Settling –

This piece of art was actually one of the most uncomfortable to create & witness as the Artist, because it’s the stage where you think, or hope, you are coming out of your anxiety or panic attack, you feel exhausted & although the worst of it is over, you still have that fear looming that it could start up again, this is what this piece represents, in colour, pattern & loose cell shapes, as it is still very mixed in terms of the colours used & their blend. Come & see the Artworks in person & talk to the Artist this September, details below.

Anxious Over Art – Darkness proveils

Anxious Over Art? So what is it? Well, this Exhibition is a reflection of the battles I have faced with Anxiety & Panic attacks, each painting depicts my visual of what each of these stages would look like if you could see them in colour.

Darkness Proveils –

This is one of the darkest pieces in the Exhibition, & not just because of it’s dark hues, this piece represents Anxiety at it’s growing stage, when it is just trying to take over, however, the ‘CELLS’ which I’ve created in this painting, are vital also, these small areas of bright colour represent the person trying to fight through the panic which they are experiencing, for that reason, it is one of the most striking pieces in the collection. Come along & see these paintings in person & grab a cuppa while you’re there.
