Penthos
Penthos

Grief accompanies death - a psychological and physiological response to the loss of someone dear or significant. That said, grief may occur as the result of a number of other causes: loss of well-being, sexual function, safety, physical mobility, objects, love or community, independence, income, hopes and home.

By awarding grief an identity – Penthos - the images provide a personified, malevolent narrative for this potentially crippling condition, making manifest the despair, the separation from reality and the endlessly-thwarted aspirations of the sufferer. 

My aim is to show how the unfathomable process of grief places its quarry within a desolate and abstruse state of mind, where normality becomes distant, and escape beyond reach.
