Regenerator

Regenerator

from 500.00

From the Lick series, portraying human as sculpture – a multi media project documenting wounds and the potential beauty behind the healing process.  

The portrait shows the wound in context, universal life experiences spilling from the body. The sculpture, a reliquary of the wound, focuses on good that results from purged suffering by highlighting those experiences as precious objects encased in vitrines.

Based in physical loss, Regenerator translates emotional and mental growth through coping with grief. White hearts spill out of openings at finger tips to land in a pile of larger carved and distressed wooden hearts. The model is an artist who lost parts of his fingers through a woodworking accident.

Lick is also a book, a catalog of the portraits paired with stories and poems written by a variety of authors to reflect the sentiment of each sculpture.
