We all know the beloved Jim Carrey from films like The Truman Show, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. If you are a 90s kid like me, Ace Ventura and Dumb & Dumber. But in this 6-minute documentary produced by his own arts company, Carrey shows a different side of himself that we rarely get to see as a thoughtful, sensitive painter recovering from a broken heart.
A question that comes up for us often here at ENDPAIN is: Why create? Why tell your story? Why is self-expression an important step in healing? In this video, Carrey sums up these questions with simplicity and care: itâ€™s an intrinsic human need to share our inner worlds with one another and painting happens to be the means through which he feels called to do so. Through Carreyâ€™s example, we hope to find the same confidence within ourselves to express and share without the fear of feeling rejected or misunderstood in order to take part in one of the grandest human experiences of all: being known by one another.
