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.  Please contact us at if you have any questions or concerns regarding the exhibition.
