This painting was inspired by a mannequin in a jeweller’s shop in Stephen’s Green Shopping centre , Dublin and was gifted to St. Patrick’s University Psychiatric Hospital , Dublin in 2011. It seemed a very appropriate home for the work as I have experience of the wonderful work that is done at this hospital.
The mind is a very powerful part of our being and yet at the same time must be nurtured and cared for.
The concept of the piece is to convey the potential of the mind. Here are some quotes from some very beautiful minds :
“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.” -James Allen
“The world we have created is a product of our thinking; it cannot be changed without changing our thinking.”
“If you think you can do a thing, or think you can’t do a thing, you are right.”
“A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
Here is a detail from the painting
Please feel free to leave the thoughts of your mind 🙂
