Throughout history, the iris has been a symbol of hope and valour. The Schizophrenia movement chose the iris as a symbol for those suffering from mental illness following the historic sale of “Les Irises” (by Vincent van Gogh) for more than $50 million in 1987. “Les Irises” was painted in the garden of the asylum at St. Remy, in the south of France, in May 1889 when van Gogh was having his most desperate battle with a mental illness, now believed to have been some form of psychosis.
The process was loose, experimental and magical!
