Newest piece entitled “(De)Facing P.T.S.D.”
The piece plays off of the emotional toll PTSD has, and how many wear a mask to shield their feelings, and hide their vulnerability. The piece is painted up in watercolor, and took about 150 hrs to complete. The military doesn’t seem to recognize PTSD as an injury of war, and asking for help is like speaking a foreign language. The name tag on the soldier is ‘Ayudar’ which means ‘to help’ in spanish, and like the ”help” soldiers get these days, ‘Ayudar’ is hidden in the shadows.
