Exhibition Curated by Jenna Michelle Pink
"The works vary from abstract paintings and sculpture to in your face confessional drawings and photography. All work here is unedited and raw creating an unnerving yet liberating atmosphere in the gallery. The work is tied together with the artist’s individual interpretations of the creative process and its use in their separate paths to self-heal inner-traumas.

“Witnessing the work in this exhibition offers the viewer a chance to explore the lived experience of the artists through the creative process, whilst allowing the individual to take a look at their own personal life experiences,” says Jenna Michelle Pink, exhibiting artist and curator of the event. 

The exhibition offers a fresh perspective into the use of creativity as a form of therapy and aims to create awareness of mental trauma by allowing the audience to engage with the subject matter at hand. " 

See you there on opening night! MQ xx
