Chaos of Life
Kirsty Sewell is a contemporary, conceptual photographer whose work examines notions of mental health and identity. As a child, Kirsty sought with difficulty to understand her own mental health challenges which were marked by anxiety and depression. The only way she felt she could express her emotions was through her visual practice. Chaos of Life explores the experience of anxiety. Kirsty works to create a personal narrative and uses her camera to explore both her emotions and her thoughts. Kirsty’s practice also includes aspects of automatism, with methods of automatic writing/drawing facilitating expressions of inner anxiety.
