It’s easy to feel like a specimen rather than a person as you move through all the stages from diagnosis to healing. And, there is no recipe for getting through the physical and emotional trauma of any life altering experience.
But I found, that the more I made work about it, the more control I felt I had of the situation. Focusing on process. finding images and various materials that intuitively felt right with each piece helped me find distance, healing and even the lighter side of life.
What connection do you see between my body and the elements incorporated into the piece?
