Working with clients facing homelessnessĀ from New Hope Trust in Watford, focusing on mental health and discussing artĀ and Van Gogh.
I created a line drawing across six same size canvases of Van Gogh's portrait, after his ear lobe incident. Each person then created their section of the painting using textiles, paint, collage, working from the original photograph of the painting to fill in their area. When put together it becomes whole.
Outcomes of being more open about mental health while discussing a famous person who suffered from mental health issues, creating something with other people, working together towards a common goal, combating loneliness and feeling part of a community.
