Wound Care

Inspired by the bright colors on the edges of the pages of my growing collection of old medical books, I began working from the observation that the interior of the body was evident not only on the inside of the books through image and text, but also on the outsides of the book. I re-formed these red, pink and yellow colored pages into new medical paper sculptures to create distinct specimens/sculptures that reference intricate cross-sections of flesh. In the “Wound Care” series, the paper sculptures are bound with wound care materials – gauze, plaster and cotton bandages.
