Three Migraine Paintings, 48" x 48", Acrylic on Canvas, 2014 - 2016
I paint my migraine ‘aura’, an optical phenomenon common with 25% of migraine patients. I depict what I see during a severe attack; I want the viewer to experience the terror, isolation, and beauty of a migraine by trapping their field of vision within the canvas. These paintings are my way of taking control over the uncontrollable and giving proof of an otherwise intangible neurological disease.
