‘After Dark’ is a modern representation of art as therapy.
These series of works are a representation of Carrick’s struggles with depression and how art, the process of creating and colour offered her a sense of light.
When you’re feeling your lowest and in the dark, there is always tomorrow to start over;.. A new day to start again, new energy, mindfulness, new beginnings. Everyday sunrise brings an opportunity for awakening, rebirth, healing and energy., After Dark is a series of works that represents hope and progress. Carrick wants this collection to be more personal and to let others in on her own struggles with depression and how painting is her form of escapism through her darker times, these paintings are like little windows of brightness, solitude and nostalgia.
