Les Peintures (2019)
More than 25 years ago, my photographic work began with the need for beginning a process of self-acceptance and self-healing from being abused for most of my young life due to my weight problems. Later, I shifted my focus from the physical to the psychological, delving into more personal experiences. Today, I have, in a sense, come full circle, focusing again on my appearance and associating it with an inner struggle with my aging and changing body but including psychological and spiritual symbols as I often do in my photographic work.
In this series, I incorporated textures and marks on my body as well as throughout the image, to show the internal battle of my strengths and weaknesses, creating a depth beyond the surface.
