91- When Art Imitates Depressed Life


When an artist’s paintings changed from flowers, trees and butterflies to powerful visceral displays of depression’s darkness and pain… Jeff Beier made the decision that series, named “Incidamus,” the Latin word for depression, had to be shown and felt and discussed. The public display of his private pain is creating “visceral honesty between strangers.” If you’ve ever wondered if being honest about your depression could help you and/or another person, Jeff will remove any doubt.
