Artist Jessica Gorlicky is sending a message of positive mental health and awareness through this sculpture – in a fun but chaotic manner… how we process thoughts and feelings; how many what-ifs and choices. It’s never ending. Keeping a positive frame of mind and a healthy attitude can be daunting and it all stems from our thought processing; mentally/physically/emotionally, our surroundings somewhat define and influence is. How do you keep a healthy positive mental attitude? Gorlicky’s response: “I dance! I paint! I laugh!”
