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.
