About the Works
|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.
|The cyanotype process uses ultraviolet (UV) light to produce a deep prussian blue. Sun spots are caused by overactive pigment cells and are prone to occur on skin frequently exposed to the UV light of the sun.
