A portrait of the artist as a schizophrenic cat

Okay, so the cat's not really schizophrenic, just the person who painted it. 4 pictures showing the progression of the illness as represented by the artist's twisting perceptions. From household pet to angry god.

Schizophrenia fascinates and terrifies me.


  • wow that's really interesting, Sam. Schizophrenia is an fascinating illness -particularly the way in which it has entered 'pop culture' and we fling around the word "skitzo" etc. The understanding of what it really is has been so badly warped by trashy media just showing TV characters with 2 ppl in their head etc.
    Those paintings have such formidable beauty when you see them together like that. thanks for the link!
