Event description

Description

Dragon costumes, roses, paramedics and rock stars with guitars are all depicted as part of a new exhibition that seeks to help people understand post-traumatic stress and explore the process of recovery.

“The Twisted Rose and other lives” exhibition showcases a new series of artworks from artist Andy Farr. Each painting is based on a personal account of the impact of trauma on someone’s life. The paintings show how people can grow during their recovery, as well as helping others to understand the feelings that trauma can create.

First exhibited at the Institute of Mental Health in Nottingham the show moves to Coventry University's Lanchester Gallery from 7th March. The exhibition will open on weekdays only until 28th March 2019.

Andy Farr complted his MA at Coventry University in 2017. He is excited to be returning with a new series of paintings.

“My hope is that the exhibition of moving and thought-provoking depictions of what it is like to suffer and recover from mental health problems will raise awareness and consciousness of the issues surrounding trauma. The imagery provides new insights into a wide range of people’s experiences from birth trauma to war trauma, as well providing potentially positive therapeutic outcomes for those directly involved.”
