Me or My OCD

Me or my OCD is about the questioning of my own illness. It addresses the blurring of lines between my identity and the identity of my disorder. It is related to the separation I create between myself and my OCD as a way to feel saner and the subsequent shattering of that separation when I was demonized as a violent person in complete control of their actions. It asks the question, am I my disorder? The image of the dishes is one of the triggers that set off my OCD during a specific episode. This work is drawn entirely with my left hand.
