Simultaneously functioning as a reminder of mortality
and symbol of survival, a scar has the power to individualize, aestheticize,
violate, and even enliven the person who bears it. As a psychological
and visceral trigger, the scar confronts us both personally and collectively.
It reflects advancements in medical technology and societal notions of
bio-progress while attesting to the bodys innate ability to heal
itself. My work seeks to address the scar as a complex agent of strength,
sensuality, conflict, and beauty.
