Artist’s statement

'Thoughts are the language of the mind’
'I think, therefore I am’
'Just stop and think about it…’
But how can we stop thinking? How do we suppress thoughts? And where do they go once they’re suppressed?

Out of my mind (Don’t put me in a box) was therapeutic, enabling me to express my feelings throughout the HSC year in a way that pushed me to delve into the idea of thought suppression and prejudice.
