ReConnect artist David Bradley has been chosen by Outside In to show some of his work in The Dizziness of Freedom, a group exhibition part of the Anxiety 2014 Arts Festival. To mark the start of Mental Health Awareness Week and in recognition of the theme and the festival, they have decided to focus on Bradley’s work and practice.
“How and when did you first start making art?
How? I think it was through despair, angst, going through a bad time, a bad period in my life and I thought art would be an outlet for how I was feeling. I went to a stress place and they were doing some art classes and I thought I would try that, painting beaches and landscapes. That was about 12 years ago. I wasn’t painting landscapes for 12 years, I was just starting out and then eventually I started to do things like this; that was truer to how I was feeling.”
