Here, you can purchase copies of De’Anne’s written work and prints of her visual work will be available to purchase in October of this year. Much of what you spend here will allow De’Anne to create, print and share more work. It is important to know that you are not simply buying a product, you are investing in culture and supporting the practice of an artist educator, and for that, your contribution is considerably appreaciated and valued.

Mood (2019)

Mood (2019) is a original piece of art by De’Anne Crooks, first exhibiting at the solo show Two Truths and  Lie. Made of up three 25.5 x 14 cm canvas fabric and mud roc sheets, Mood
re-images the dynamic infrastructure of PET brain scan visuals. Using acrylic paint to mix colours that embody high levels of hue and saturation, the artist explores just how complex having a mood disorder is; particularly, bi polar disorder.

There are perceptions that bi-polar disorder is  a linear switch between feeling sad and happy, but Mood(2019) aims to unpack the multifaceted layers of mood disorders; visualising how the brain fluctuates rapidly and gradually between a state of mania and depression.
