Rust-orange and cream-colored abstract on thin, pulped paper. Vine-like dark brown swirls detail.
Historical Context:
"Standing before the mirror every morning, we receive bits of our bodies' knowledge. Your skin is flaking. Your hair is getting thin. Will this scar ever fade? Where did that mole come from? Didn't dad have one there, too? Will I get his nose hairs as well? The body has a memory independent of the brain, suspended in its cell walls. These cell walls continuously divide and multiple and always in ways that highlight our imperfections... Our perceived imperfections weigh heavily on our subconscious. This series explores the real and imagined layers of information our brain observes that both manipulate our perception and influence our interactions." -Mili Thibodeau
