Dichotomies

Dichotomies (2014) explores the paradox between creation and deterioration. Pathological imagery of osteoporosis, a degenerative bone disease, was used as reference for a series of drawings. The inherently creative process of drawing is used here as a destructive act, the positive marks on paper forming holes that mar the pristine surface of the paper, mirroring the erosion that it depicts.
