Description

Through a metaphorical narrative about love, Dahlia explores a relationship between two people which is burdened by mental illness. Journey through a colorful and ever- changing world; a hand painted realm that shifts and morphs to portray a darkened state of mind. Based on the ups and down of my parents' relationship, this illustrative and subtle narrative conveys a nuanced look into the experience of mental illness and how love, patience and commitment can overcome even the biggest obstacles.
