I have struggled with mental illness for the past 25 years. This artwork represents my mind. This is a shield made out of 12 inch aluminum. It is painted in various colours to represent different moods. The wire birds represent thoughts. This artwork is has spectral gel in it so that when it hits the light it glistens.
My artwork addresses Ephesians 6:10-20 as it is a shield of faith. This represents my mind and the wire bird respresent thoughts both positive and negative that fly around in my mind. The shield does has some cracks (crackle paint) in it but stays in tact.
