This piece tells the story of the my sister, Irma, who suffered for years with schizophrenia. Irma was born September 23, 1935. Irma was diagnosed with schizophrenia at about age 19 or 20. Prior to that, Irma suffered a lot of abuse in her life, both sexual abuse and physical abuse. Abused much of her childhood life, she later married a very abusive, alcoholic husband as well. She went through a lot of hurt! After her husband divorced her, Irma abused alcohol and was also highly medicated for her schizophrenia. As a teenager, Irma was a beautiful young lady. Many people thought she looked like the actress, Rita Hayworth. Because of her bright red hair, Irma related to Lucille Ball on TV and wanted to do her lipstick like Lucy. But because she was always so highly medicated, she would overdo the lips and look clownish or gaudy. For all her challenges, Irma was a sweet, gentle and loving person! She died several years ago.

Additional information about this artwork: This work of art is part of a traveling exhibit by Steve Head called, "Family Secrets". This powerful exhibit has been viewed by people from all around the world. Steve Head's exhibit has been featured on TV and in magazines.

Family Secrets Art Exhibit, by Steve Head collection image
This award winning Art Exhibit by Steve Head is a collection of works that tackle tough issues like: Child Abuse; Mental Illness; Suicide; Poverty; Childhood Trauma; and Generational Family Dysfunction. This exhibit has touched the hearts of people from all around the world. Using VR, (virtual reality), like Oculus, teachers from countries outside the United States are bringing their students into an online VR art gallery, to meet the artist and see the exhibit. The first such group were "at-risk" teenagers from Ukraine. The artist uses his own struggles and his own family story to express his pain and share his innermost wounds. In doing so, these artworks connect his heart - directly to the hearts of others in a visceral way. The response from young people and adults alike has been amazing. The purpose of this exhibit is to bring these topics out of the closet of shame and into the light. To openly talk about & share our hidden stories is the beginning of the healing process.
