The Rorschach

Darryl Love's avatar Darryl Love

This is my version of The Rorschach- it is an ink blot test where people express what they see in it. (It is used in the science of mental health and originally formed by painter and Doctor- Herman Rorschach in 1921). You can see whatever you want. There is a 2 page essay titled "Rorschach: The Black and The White". As a whole they balance each other out quite well like a yin-yang, You'll have to read both. The essays are about the fire in your soul, rising from the ashes, finding inner peace, and giving hope while describing things I see in the Rorschach. It is real, deep, personal, and it has soul. This project is taking my art to a new level- with my love of asylums and making it realer. I was my own psychiatrist and mental patient by giving myself the Rorschach test and responding to it. It was meant to inspire in so many ways. The purpose of this project is to get others to care. The Rorschach is my past 2 Artprize entries (The Fiskateer and Deep Within) under a microscope.
