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.

This is an older piece that I made with an old photo enlarger, my facial profile, and my hands. I don’t know what led to me making it, but I know I was suffering from depression at the time. It’s hard to tell which way the hands are pushing. Hands coming at me or my hands pushing something away. A person? A thought? A nightmare? Scary no matter which way you look at it. It’s like a bad dream you can sort of remember, but can’t really interpret what happened or why.
