Ashton Wilkinson Boyd

Contemporary artist

Limited edition, hand finished prints

Operating under the name BAY, Ashton is an Adelaide based artist, whose ‘Mind Maps’ represent a search for identity, belonging and resulting the mental health challenges. Acrylic paints are marbled and react with gel mediums to represent the unpredictable symptoms of anxiety and depression. Contrasting lines represent contour lines giving the impression of islands, a reference to the artist’s Polynesian ancestry. The paintings are a metaphor for the isolating feeling mental health symptoms often result in, making you feel as though you are alone on an island.

$5 from each sale is donated to Headspace, the national youth mental health foundation dedicated to improving the wellbeing of young Australians
