Visualisation of difficult emotions
Farhaana takes a critical and exploratory view of Art Therapy in relation to mental states such as Post-Traumatic-Stress, Anxiety and being in control of one's own self. What intrigues her are the symptoms of a patient who persistently re-experiences the trauma in the following ways: recurrent images, flashbacks, dreams or places that bring up feelings. Her work uses repetitive forms, material and processes which reflects the tedious nature of the way trauma is always repeating in certain ways. The process and method is conceptual and is about articulating difficult emotions into visible form.
