Acrylic on Paper

My work deals with surviving a life-threatening disease. Images deal with trauma, mortality, PTSD, and living with a new body and our response to an ever-changing, fleeting, and, reassembled life, in parts that become whole. The decision to work on paper has always resonated with me, because of its “fleshiness” and absorbent qualities. Paper is a malleable material that responds, well, to my aggressive, layered and expressive gestures.
