DMST Atelier is so pleased to present “I Need Therapy Too,” a solo exhibition by artist, Malcolm “So EZ” Edwards

Artist Statement:

Part I

Pain is beauty. 

Paint is healing. 

When my therapist and cousin passed, I painted at home for days, using mediums to express emotions I never felt. 

My therapist balanced my emotion, and was gone. 

Journaling served as an escape but writing between the lines wasn’t healing anymore. I journaled on clothes, televisions etc., using different mediums to reach emotional depths. 

I accent pieces with orange colors to turn the volume up: scream without screaming. Blue calms me and keeps balance internally. Green represents, nature, life, and good spirits. Yellow balances my art, providing optimism and faith. 

I will add more yellow to my future works and life. 

Part II

I attempted watching tv for entertainment. I wrote “I stopped watching tv cuz the stuff in my head more interesting” in the middle of my bedroom tv screen. I genuinely felt like that.
News and media outlets depiction of black people is disgusting. Constant psychological and mental trauma through media is genocide. 

Add social media we all fried. 

I used televisions as journals to express.

I hope I inspire people to use different colors and mediums to express themselves for less anxiety and more freedom. 

I need therapy too.
