“Migraines in Nature” by Artist Bethany Noël Murray

Paintings by Boston-based artist Bethany Noël Murray who has had chronic migraines for more than two decades. These painful attacks have become a source of inspiration for her art as one of her symptoms is an ocular disturbance called ‘aura’. She says, “Superimposed in my vision is a shimmering wave of lights, colors, black holes, and other unsettling but beautiful neurological artifacts. My paintings have been proof to myself of what I experience during an attack, and despite the pain, I’ve made the choice to see the good, weird, and beautiful, and I hope my paintings help my viewers find bits of unexpected joy in the natural world.” See more images below.
