Mosman artist Katrina Crook presents In Silence, a body of photographic work reacting to the avalanche of youth mental health challenges facing our community.
Katrina’s work aims to give young people a voice, a safe environment to stimulate conversation, destigmatise mental illness and create dialogue to work towards solutions that encourage mental fitness and enable those suffering to ask for help.
In Silence presents each untitled work as a figurative portrait that embodies the collective and complexity of mental illness. Each portrait is deconstructed and reconstructed uniquely, as every experience is individual.
Too many lives are lost, too many lives are forever fragmented, mental illness is a quiet affliction many endure in silence.
