Enough Space Gallery, 2016
“Out of body, out of control. My decisions aren't my own, my emotions aren't my own.”
- From anonymous, to the artist via social media.
In her exhibition Feeling Blue, Frances Cannon has taken inspiration from a number of anonymous submissions featuring descriptions of what it feels like to suffer from anxiety, and has created a series of ink drawings. As a woman with anxiety herself, the artist aims to connect with others who live with anxiety and depression and provide a safe and understanding space for discussion around mental illness.
