ARTIST STATEMENT

My breast cancer led not just to physical disabilities related to the treatment itself; it also made me confront the pain of my own mortality. This work arose from my sense of the spreading disease after the diagnosis of metastasis and the containment that was brought on by the surgery. The lines of color have meaning of at least two levels: they are expression of emotional shock as well as abstractions of my inner structure gone dangerously wild.
