Auto body paint on basswood. Dimensions vary.
The color cyan is associated with the blue skin tone that characterizes certain illnesses but it is also a color of tranquility and healing. Fabricated with auto body paint on basswood and ranging in size up to 10” x 16”, the blue surfaces are smooth as skin but their broken edges allude to the body as depleted host. Despite their grim symbolism, the panels are ultimately intended as “fever meditations” or places of visual rest during
illness.
