Hand cut sketchbook. Subject/Description
My work stems from the loss of both my mother and father due to smoking related cancers in 2013. Their passing left a deep void in my life and brought back unwanted memories of childhood abuse and trauma. I was mentally scarred from these events and only after their passing began to cope and heal with what was left behind. By using paper as a medium I am able to draw a correlation between the fragility and rigidity of the medium to that of the precariousness of life. Each opening resembles that of a beautiful scar, the remnants of past trauma and a reminder that with time all things heal. Archival Fund
