This article unpacks how a combination of literary and visual arts-based methods may help to communicate the subjective experience of chronic pain. Referencing the exhibition, The Visualisation of Pain, it explores how a more comprehensive and accessible understanding of the psychosocial side of pain experience, within personal and social contexts may be achieved. This combination of arts-based methods has not yet been explored, either sparsely or extensively within arts and health research, in specific relation to chronic pain communication and understanding.
