I assume you're here for the artwork... Welcome! This is the personal art blog for Mortimer Darcy. Excuse my dust.
While it is currently untitled, the following images are a part of a series that I chose to do on the subject of depression. It is meant to show a few of what I like to call ‘textbook symptoms’ of what an individual with depression may experience.
Depression is an ugly thing, and a disease of the mind that can pull anyone into the darkest corners of their minds. A lot of those that suffer from it are often told to snap out of it, but what the accusers don’t realize is that it is more complicated than that. The behaviors are ingrained into the individual, often unconscious and automatic. If the choice to ‘snap out of it’ was so easy, I can say with confidence that no person would choose to be depressed. It can take any individual and kill them slowly until they feel empty as if life has been sucked out of them.
Each piece is 6”x6” and is rendered in ink.
