Jo Lundberg: Sentient Spaces The DSM-5 Illustrated
“My objective is to shed light on the often dark and stigmatized topic of mental illness by creating a visually engaging text that encourages further awareness, greater understanding, and compassion for ourselves and others.”

Jo Lundberg’s Sentient Spaces is a series of painted portraits created to illustrate the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders 5 (DSM-5), a standard text that is commonly referenced by mental health professionals when making diagnoses. Lundberg draws from her experience as a clinician and art therapist and uses diagnostic criteria from the DSM-5, statistics, notable case studies, and Google image searches to create composite portraits of what various mental health disorders might “look” like. Each painting extends beyond its frame, often into sculpture, enveloping viewers in a shared experience with the individual portrayed in order to create an empathetic space. The work on display at Wolff Gallery is part of the artist's ongoing project that will culminate in a printed publication.

About the artist:
Using the pew as a desk and kneelers as her seat, Jo Lundberg taught herself how to draw as a child during Catholic mass. She never stopped doodling. Often described as “surreal,” her work is inspired by the natural world, Frida Kahlo, human anatomy, and psychology. Lundberg has shown extensively along the west coast and her work is housed in private and public collections, including that of St. Charles Medical Center in Bend, Oregon. She currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon.
