Description

Word salad is a psychiatric phenomenon, mostly seen in psychosis. It is depicted in this painting as a stream of words that seem at once intelligible whilst also gibberish. Sequences of rhyming words, neologisms (made up words) and non sensical juxtapositions allude to the disorganised thinking of psychosis. But might this not also be a beautiful piece of poetry?
