My work centers around the complex ways that we (fail to) understand our own bodies. I strive to create imagery that is both beautiful and visceral, simultaneously paying homage to organic mathematics while expressing my own confusion and frustrations with the limitations of the body. These illustrated bodyscapes consider physical and mental health, requiring cathartic but highly emotionally draining drawing processes and paralleled taxing efforts for details viewing. Each piece is created with a specific person and story in mind and is named accordingly. By making this imagery several times larger than life, I aim to communicate the concurrent feelings of anxiety, discomfort, and physical uncertainty that guide our everyday practices.
