Breaking the Silence of self-imposed solitude, a process of mourning and search for serenity. 
The first period of releasing trauma in visual expression, a prelude to healing, a form of exorcism I call Abreaction is addressed  in a recent interview I did for the 
Die Ghul Show: 
Die Ghul Show with CLOISTERING!:icondasghul:: Welcome to my humble show, :iconcloistering:!
Do you enjoy being here? :)
:iconcloistering:: Yes I do
:icondasghul:: Good! :phew:
So, when I asked you if you wanted to be on here, you accepted because, quote, "abreaction of psychological trauma is a continuous part of my work for good reason it seems to tie in well with your project."
What is it you are about to abreact, how does it influence your works, and where do you see them ties? :)
It is a form of exorcism. Abreaction visualizes the horrific, much like physically shaking off trauma imbedded in the body, visual abreaction releases it from permanently blocking life. (-Dissociation)
In principle facing 'befriending' Demons diffuses their power.
:icondasghul:: Oh wow, now that one is dated 2008 I guess you must have exorcized quite a lot of demons since then?
So what would you say, is the main difference between "befriending" ones and others? :)
:iconcloistering:: Befriend

I hope it offers insight into the process, painful yet healing, that others on DA can relate to.
It includes samples of my work while on DA during that period, of course there are many more on my site and in my portfolio, where I categorized this body of work as disturbing:…

  • Listening to: Silence
  • Reading: your mind or mine?
  • Watching: the future
  • Playing: selectively
  • Eating: seeds
  • Drinking: thoughts
