Lick contributor and book information

LICK is a multi-media project involving sculpture, photography and writing that documents wounds and the good that can manifest through the healing process.

This body of work consists of metal, silcone, and mixed media wound sculptures worn by different people as badges of courage and honor, reflecting universal life experiences. While the portrait photographs give the sculptures context, their permanent homes lie in pristine vitrines – a reliquary leaving behind the wound and instead focused on the beauty found in growth through difficult or enlightened times.



This project was made possible in part with the generous contribution of time and support from the following people and organizations:
