Paintings illustrating the world I see
Hemianopia is a condition in which a person sees only one side of the visual world due to a problem in brain function rather than a disorder of the eyes themselves. I myself have left hemianopia after a brain injury sustained in a road traffic accident in 2011 meaning I can only see the right side of the world. I’ve found that the most necessary path to recovery is engaging with people in a way in which to make them understand my sight loss. I started painting in a rehabilitation centre using art as a therapy in 2017.
