“INVISIBLE, seeks to provoke dialogue on the topic of mental illness and challenge the stigma surrounding it. Inspiration behind INVISIBLE stems from the artists’ personal experiences, struggles and victories with mental illness. The artists have also engaged with their local community to collect their stories and spoken to mental health professionals to gain further insight on this subject.  In this exhibition, PAINTER8 presents a visual interpretation of various mental illnesses: including anxiety, depression, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), bipolar disorder, mania, psychosis, and schizophrenia. By doing so, PAINTER8 uses art to bring visibility to this subject. Mental illness is often INVISIBLE.”

« INVISIBLE, vise à provoquer le dialogue au sujet des maladies mentales et contester la tare sociale qui s’y rattache. L’inspiration derrière INVISIBLE découle des expériences personnelles, des luttes et des victoires des artistes en lien aux maladies mentales. Ils se sont également engagés dans leur communauté locale afin de rassembler leurs histoires et ils ont parlé à des professionnels de la santé mentale pour gagner un nouvel aperçu de ce sujet. Dans cette exposition, PAINTER8 présente une interprétation visuelle de diverses maladies mentales, y compris l’anxiété, la dépression, le TAS (trouble affectif saisonnier), le trouble bipolaire, la manie, la psychose et la schizophrénie. Ce faisant, PAINTER8 se sert d’art pour améliorer la visibilité à l’égard de ce sujet. La maladie mentale est souvent INVISIBLE. »
