Painting

Andy Farr is working with the Institute of Mental Health to create a series of paintings that will help people to understand post-traumatic stress. Each painting will be based on a personal account of how they felt as a result of traumatic experiences in their lives. Andy is hoping the series of paintings will show how people can grow during their recovery, as well as helping others to understand the feelings of pain and anguish that trauma can create. The full set of paintings will be exhibited at the IMH in Nottingham from September and then at the Lanchester Gallery and other venues in 2019.

Andy has a particular interest in mental health. His most recent series of paintings were based on exploring the effect of his father’s bipolar disorder on his childhood. A process he says enabled him to come to terms with his own trauma and move forward.
