Considering layers of flesh, muscle, blood, skin. They are easily hurt but they can also heal.

 

 Much of my work is directly connected to trauma and physiological processes.. The neck is a particularly vulnerable area of the body, chock full of arteries. The barriers keeping our blood inside of us are alarmingly thin; the body is vulnerable but can heal itself at times. In these images I am toying with the notion of boundaries by dressing my neck up and showing it bare, bloody, covered in gauze. There are also connections with the manufactured violence of horror film and the relationship between violent imagery and the feminine.
