October's Artist of the Month

Dana Edmonds,

she/her

Why does the phrase

"art for social change"

speak to you and your work?

    "We all need to take responsibility for ourselves and our actions when it comes to climate justice. We need more transparen-cy, education and truth, not quick sound bites and little consideration to the importance of society as a whole to take action and make sustainable changes. Psychological distance with regards to overcon-sumption and its effects on mental health issues could be the key to understanding the disconnect."

Dana Edmonds uses oil paint to explore different forms of urban waste and to study the relationship between overuse and its effects on mental health issues, namely addic-tion, hoarding, anxiety, and depres-sion.
