About

With the political and natural world rapidly changing around us, how do we, as a modern connected society, deal with the daily diet of relentless negative news coverage?  Is this modern world of constant news fuelling the current fear, anxiety and division happening amongst us? 

With the government’s lack of investment in mental health services, would disconnecting from media exposure prove to be beneficial?  Would it prove to be a good way to defragment our minds in this turbulent modern world of information overload?  Or is it a good thing to be aware of every little bit of news and opinion on terrorism, war, Brexit and the Trump Presidency and to hell with mindfulness?  Is ignorance really bliss?

Seven artists explore, through the use of painting, psychological states that maybe occurring from our current social and political climate.
