“You know too much Psychology when you can’t get mad because you understand everyone’s reasons for doing everything.” -The Mind Journal. Everyone sees from different perspectives; Not one mind is alike. When abnormality strikes, reactions vary; however, what is abnormal to some, may not be abnormal to others. These pieces represent my understanding and perception of certain Psychological Disorders that I have focused on in my studies of Psychology. These pieces explore what the disorder may look like inside the individual, contrary to the outside. I portrayed these pieces using acrylic paint, oil paint, pastel and mixed media.
