Visual Arts Exhibition: Allegra Welsh

Title of Major Work: Adfectus - Painting

“My body of work is representative of a dark period of my life during which I struggled with negative emotions and mental illness,” Allegra said.

“My first piece depicts a broken mirror, imagery which is reflective of feelings of body dysmorphia and having a fragmented view of oneself. The second piece depicts things I am afraid of, such as moths, cockroaches, snakes and spiders. They are shown flowing out of the body, intending to represent a fear of the negative feelings which lurk inside all of us.”
