The 5 Stages of Depression
In my work I aim to express the journey of overcoming depression. This journey can be hard on the human body and soul. People who have been through this journey may be a different person all together once they are through it. I have created 5 busts of the same heads made out of fiberglass. They are painted bronze and through each stage of depression they become more rustic and old. The wings attached to the heads get bigger as the bust moves onto the next stage. This is the subject breaking, escaping or accepting the depression. The busts sit on perspex frames with latin translations of each stage, creating a contemporary look.
