Historical Context:
"I met a woman at an art opening and we had a long conversation about what do you do when your circumstances change? She had gone from being a dancer to being paralyzed, but she still kept working doing choreography with a dance company. She said to me, “If I can keep dancing you can keep painting.” So I thought of different ways to bring my artwork back into the medical world. I thought maybe I could do a print of her back and tell her story. Soon as I showed this artwork it was very apparent that everybody who had a major scar wanted me to tell their story." - Ted Meyer
