Something Can Happen Beyond Expectation

We humans use language, its descriptions, and its expressions, as a basic skill to speak about what we need, want, and what we face. However, what happens when we find ourselves incapable of speaking about our hard experiences? What if our brain hides these bad experiences in our subconsciousness in an attempt to safeguard itself?

Art therapy benefits individuals who have survived trauma resulting from war, abuse or natural disaster. People with adverse physical health conditions are greatly helps by art therapy. It also aids people in resolving their internal conflicts, improving their interpersonal lives and dealing with their problematic behaviours. In my project, I am looking to the works of some artists that I know, who I have met or spoken to. These works motivate me to think: Do artists generally use art as a therapy to help themselves first?
