Psychosis as inspiration for his artwork
10 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

The Maze was a film about a Canadian Artist. The artist seems to have experienced psychosis - which is a mental state of influx. This seems to have been a source of inspiration for his artworks. There is a fine line between mental illness and art. At times it seems that artwork is a form of therapy for an individual, and then the question is, if the art is art or if the art is therapy. Can an artwork be independent of a therapy? Or is it linked completely to the soul of man and hence will always remain a part of his consciousness or unconsciousness? Art in this case seems to be a tool for the Canadian artist. It seems that once the artist reached adulthood, his only mission was to create artwork in order to survive some of the inner demons the artist seemed to have been facing. Is art child-like? Or is there a psychic-knowledge to artwork? Is artwork only about the individual creating it, or is there something special that all viewers can relate to? What makes good art and what makes art have some kind of universal quality to it? The Maze has artworks that remind me of Jeroen Bosch, a Dutch artist from the past. Jeroen Bosch in a sense created the Surrealist movement and inspired artists such as S. Dali. This Canadian artist no doubt followed in the trend of the Surrealists. His artworks were of both reality and non-reality. Perhaps, to him both reality and non-reality seemed real enough to him, as to lead him to a sense isolation - which could have been why he searched for some kind ofspiritual meaning in his life. Which, in a sense, he seems to have found in the end. A good movie. It could have focused solely on onepainting versus his life, his paintings and his Existentialism.
