Steve Macleod – ‘Li+’

Steve Macleod’s series ‘Li+’ – the epiphany of light: “the relationship with the stabilizing drug Lithium and how it affects my behavior”

Following to a psychiatric treatment with Lithium Carbonate, the artist started for his dark depression, the initial images of the landscape he made reflected the period of confused anxiety. As he started to respond to the medication he realized that though still is the same person, he was perceiving the environment in a different way. The hyper anxiety, fear and frustration were no longer a deep emotional burden and he created a stillness that experiences environmental aura with his own Pictorialist sensibility.
