“Uprooted” by Lisa Benson

My dear friend and fellow writer for, Lisa Benson, was the first one to answer my call to share art that depicts illness and pain.

This beautiful sculpture is call “Uprooted.” Below Lisa describes her thoughts and intentions as she created this piece:

Uprooted” is loosly inspired by Andrew Wyth’s “Christina’s World.” In my relief, the world the figure is experiencing is turned upside-down. That describes my state of mind when first falling into the world of chronic migraine–nothing in my life made sense anymore and I had to re-sort out my values.
