My Bipolar Pain(t) by David A. Feingold, Ed.D.
(Artist's Statement: I feel I am fortunate to have bipolar disorder. It contributes to my uniqueness and not only forces me to live with imperfections, it redefines them as necessities. I am bipolar and proud to the extent that I refer to myself as a bipolar artist as opposed to a more conventionally acceptable form: "an artist with bipolar disorder." Yes, at times, it pains me to have bipolar disorder, but shirking from its overriding place, influence and effects in my life, pains me even more. As the title of my image suggests, we can't paint over our pain with euphemisms and minimizing its close ties to our personalities, as it only muddles our self-perception and creates confusion and doubt concerning who we really are.)
