Migraine Mary abstract art by Kimba Livesay

 

Migraine Mary

I suffer from migraines and somedays they are so spectacular, I just fade away. Art has always been the language that helps me work through challenging situations. To reclaim my brightness, I explored what a migraine would look like in form, color, and name. The name Mary means rebellious, bitterness and beautiful. I could certainly relate to the migraines being rebellious and bitter. Migraine Mary effortlessly unfolded on to my canvas as someone I deeply knew. She is the visual expression of how I experience migraines and I find that beautiful.
