‘Autismo 25’ is a new body of mixed media works on paper. The work is a continuation of the ‘On a Spectrum – an exploration of Asperger’s syndrome’ collection and highlights my continued reflections and journaling of my Asperger’s diagnosis and perceptions around this.
The collection uses the Spanish word for autism; ‘autismo’ as it was created while taking part in Hannacc artist residency in Spain, but also acts as a reminder that autism is a global condition and something that affects people regardless of where we are in the world.
Select pieces of the collection are currently being exhibited at Maidenhead’s St Mark’s hospital (in the main reception corridor), as well as in Picnic café in Reading. Further pieces will be shown at the Workhouse Coffee in May, with an upcoming group show at Espai-B gallery in Barcelona.
