Alexithymia is not being able to match the word to the feeling. I have recently begun to learn it's not that I can't feel because I feel very deeply. This piece shows Alexithymia as the black in this piece. The colors are what I I feel and are waiting to burst through.
About the Artist
My artwork is influenced by my autism. Being on the spectrum helps me create my artwork and-finally after many years- I see it as my ally, not something that defines and limits me. Art allows me to communicate the beauty and joy that I see and feel, but can't always fully convey in words. Through autism, I see and interpret the world as brilliant, bold color and shapes, almost like a kaleidoscope. Through these colors and shapes I find meaning as well as translate my joy. This is what my artwork is and who I AM. Autism is the vehicle that helps me create and encode my artwork. My Divinity shows me the codes, colors and shapes to include in each piece, and I act as a translator. The artwork is meant to offer a choice to viewers, meaning that those who are willing and choose to, to accept and learn the codes that were created. The purpose of this is to help reawaken humanity's light, and as such, bring light and beauty back to this world.
