Art Description

Collage: Digital, Paper, charcoal, paint, phototransfer on Canvas, Paper.

Previving is an extension of a larger series called Redefining Beauty Project, an ongoing collaboration with women across the world, brave enough to share images of themselves after enduring surgeries, biopsies, or radiation due to the affects of breast cancer. Previving is my own journey of living with the threat of breast cancer as a BRCA 1 gene mutation carrier. I chose to have a prophylactic mastectomy in order to reduce my risk of developing the disease. This series reveals the process of letting go, and of rebuilding, attempting to connect mind and body through the process of healing. As breast and ovarian cancers are diseases that are linked to external archetypes of femininity, when our bodies are altered, our identities are often affected as well. Like the clothes and bras that cover the scars to make us feel “normal”, and “like ourselves again”, the series reveals the layers and complexities of living with our altered bodies.
