Amy Monaghan

Amy Monaghan is an experimental artist that works on making mental illnesses visible. What is created by man? What is created by the mind? This is something in constant motion when an individual has challenges with a mental illness, having to learn new ways of trusting their perception and understanding of the space/environment around them and how day-to-day interactions and observations can be compromised by the illness. Amy’s work reflects on her daily encounters, experiences and emotions when working with vulnerable adults and uses the opportunity to reveal the reality of working within an environment that supports various mental illnesses and the challenges.
