Desolate

Sculpture

Molly O’Keefe 

My works correlate the loss of literature with the downward trajectory of mental health and wellbeing amongst current youth.  The gritty textures and dark colour schemes presented throughout assist in highlighting the raw, destructive nature of this construct and its consequences. 

From being constantly surrounded and engaged within a technological falsified truth, a deep sense of despair and disconnection within the world is developed. Growing up surrounded by such standards normalises the disassociation that many young adults are coming to experience, thus explaining the surplus of youth entering mentalities of consistent despondency and dejection. The lacking presence of literature in current culture is provenly harming our tether to reality, as consciously depicted within my body of work.
