Healing Through Connections

This 24-piece artwork was created on 8 September 2022 by 24 community participants invited to celebrate Queensland Mental Health Week.

None of these people knew what the original completed artwork looked like. Each person chose an art panel and a same sized copy of that section of the original to work with. The day was facilitated led by Community Artist, Alan Parsons who also created the original. Alan assisted each person with paint mixing, art skills and techniques such as layering using acrylics.

The painting symbolizes the inner being of a person with radiating circles of energy linked and connected with each other, radiating energy and power.The outermost ring has been fractured and is being repaired by many hands working together, healing the person they have connected with.

It was assembled and displayed on Oct 12 for QMHW and is now temporarily on display seeking a permanent home.

The creation of this piece involved using art as therapy for the participants and at the same time expresses their shared experiences as they worked together.

This was made possible by Alan Parsons, the good people of Connections Inc Caboolture and the Queensland Mental Health Commission.
