Dueling Popes

Graphite on Reeves paper. 2011

Another Piece on my struggle with mental illness. To your right is me as an artist (who I want to be) and to the left is me as ill, dealing with religiosity and “god” telling me not to do art.

30+ hours of work, unfortunately the detail in the photo isn’t strong enough to show how Pope Benedict’s mouth is dripping with blood.

About Vykky

I'm an artist from upstate New York. I've won a couple awards and I like to focus my work around my battle with schizoaffective disorder.
