Inner: Don’t Peak is a series of eight paintings that depict the artist’s physical manifestations of trauma and mental illness. The characters depicted in each of the eight paintings represent a different archetype: Baba, a humanoid-bird creature that represents generational trauma; The Neighbor, a feminine presence that represents self-harm; Suffocating Hugger, a figure draped in layered fabrics that represent depression; Double Trouble, androgynous-looking twins that represent anxiety and paranoia; The Three-Headed Who, a faceless figure with three-headsthat represent derealisation, depersonalization and dissociation; Daydreamer, a fae that represents maladaptive daydreaming; Shackled Distract, a long-bodied creature that represents executive dysfunction; Cursed Ones, transparent humanoid figures that represent dysphoria and gender-dysphoria. Grey intends to expand this series into a divination deck, depicting a wider range of mental illnesses, disorders and unhealthy coping mechanisms.
