The OCD Series

“The OCD Series is the culmination of my research into Obsessive Compulsive behaviour. For some people OCD is an extremely serious phycological disorder that greatly impedes the lives of those who suffer it. However, everyone to some extent displays signs of personal rituals, quirks and foibles.

In this collection i have created a series of works that reflect obsessive or ritualistic behaviour in relation to everyday objects.” (Mark Owens)

Left Brain, Right Brain

 

Left brain

I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right brain

I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feat. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be
