BARE WITNESS

2016

BATTLE SCAR, the hanging amber-colored imprint, is like a scab, fragile and barren from being peeled off healing flesh. It hangs above and contrasts the SEPTIC WOUND it came from: a gouged, darkened, and dirty floor remnant that's been trampled on and abused. It is meant to capture the rage and anger I feel through the physicality of mark-making and the deployment of self-deprecating text. STAINS, the black and white prints, are self-portraits depicting my ages of intense trauma and the false faces I hid behind over the years. The aim of all this work is to purge the shame I have swallowed throughout my life and give credence to the unburdened.
