I have nearly come to an end with my dissertation my word count is nearly up, and now I feel I have so much more to write about. Especially looking at mental health alongside creativity, I have read an abundance of articles, journals, and books, and what I have personally learnt, is that great art does not stem for suffering. Suffering is always going to a part of human life and bad things happen, but you can use that suffering and produce something completely opposite in feeling. Like a rose out of weed. It may hold substance of negativity but the outcome can be beautiful.
Art can extract meaning from suffering.
