Bleeding Heart
ink on paper
13 x 10 in.

What is this body of mine? That I don’t understand and that I am afraid will betray me; that will inevitably destroy me, making me turn against myself.

What is your body doing while you aren’t watching? Do you have ovaries that chew on your uterus in your sleep? Do you have a hole in your heart threatening to spill your life juices? Do your cells multiply and destroy you? Or heal you?

My drawings are fantasies of the destruction and power of my essential elements. The very same elements that were created from life, will in turn create life, and are fated to destroy themselves. They are offerings to the beasts within my skin and to you. They scream, hoping to pacify, sustain and calm.
