Alix de Bretagne creates conceptual art to experience the liberation that comes with self-expression; finding inspiration in the awareness and understanding of the human experience. Through his art, Alix shares his personal experiences with mental health in order to connect with others, whilst challenging stigmas around depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and suicide. I ask Alix about his latest piece 'H8 Ball'; what art means to him; and what needs to change in society for people to feel more accepted and supported.
Artist Eefje Van den Brande approaches the canvas with fluidity and freedom, taking inspiration from nature to explore the unity between all living things. Starting from a single ink blot, she lets her paintings evolve naturally; encouraging viewers to embrace their emotions, live freely and in harmony with nature.
There is a common expression that a cluttered home leads to a cluttered mind. When the physical space around us is messy and disorganised, we may feel heavy and unfocused; which in turn makes it more challenging for us to navigate our work and creative endeavours. I spoke to Lili Pettit, Founder of Clutter Healing about Holistic Home Organising and the impact this has on our well-being.
