Description

After a road traffic accident left Dominic with an acquired brain injury when he was only two years old, few would have thought that the event would be the catalyst to a unique creative talent.

The accident left Dominic with damage to the left side of his brain (the side associated with logic, sequencing and mathematics) whilst the right side of his brain, (the side associated with creativity, passion and imagination etc) was comparatively undamaged. This resulted in Dominic developing a natural interest and aptitude for things of a creative nature and the ability to bond on an emotional level with the world around him. Furthermore, the accident had also damaged the part of the brain that governs sight, leaving Dominic with an array of visual issues but also adding ‘unique perspective’ to his creative sensitivity.  

This exhibit showcases Dominic’s interpretation of the Lakeland and Pennine landscapes of which he is inspired by.
