Who we are & why we are

Welcome to the gallery site of Broken Light Collective. We are artists of all levels and abilities who are affected by mental illness. We create and we share our work for the therapeutic benefits to us, as well as others who may be struggling and feeling scared and alone. Together we can move from disconnected to collective.

Photo taken by DeeDee, a bipolar sufferer. Not pensive, but mischievous, somewhat surreal, and much larger than life. I think of Harvey. Is it really there? The film records only truth, so the giant rabbit cannot be a hallucination. This time, anyway.

The Thinker on a Rock is in the Sculpture Garden of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The statue is an irreverent parody of Auguste Rodin’s famous work, by Barry Flanagan.  The photo was made with a flipped-lens Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Flash camera, Arista.EDU 400 120 film, and daylight processing.

    Perhaps I’ve spent too much time thinking lately. Is that really possible?
