(Right Upper Arm Surface Map with Elbow)

This work pursues acceptance of the imperfections and impermanence of the human body. I created a large-scale low relief map of the age spots (solar lentigines) and scars on my upper arm to use as a frottage plate and the foundation of this painting's texture.

This painting is part of the  “Surface Maps” series.
