If Only It Was That Easy is part of my on-going series on the lived experience of mental illness.

The metaphorical elements include the obvious: masks, anonymity, “differentness,” but also the deeply personal element: the mask is made from one of my own pieces of work. I leave the words up to the viewer to decipher.
