"These artist/survivors have managed recoveries, or are managing recoveries, from horrific mental and physical traumas. Their artistic expressions tell their stories, send their messages about the world as they see it, a world inevitably altered from the reality others confront because of their time in a dim and dark corner. Art from survivors is a different art than the elitists' productions, not better, not worse, but different by personal experience."
