Silence and the narcissist (original)
Framed original work – mixed media on non-archival encyclopedia pages
435 x 315 mm
Silence is a challenge to dwell in but for a narcissist, the lack of stroking from everyone he/she has manipulated is as a shot of poison. The life blood of the narcissist is constant self-stroking noise sucked in and repurposed to maintain dominance, happiness and the evasion of accountability. With silence, there is the possibility of confrontation. Donald Trump is the classic theatrical representation of this mental and behavioural state and so in the time of Trump this work has some application for reflection.
