A meditation on how pain is stored in the female body. With phrases like I am afraid to be vulnerable, I am not lovable, and childhood fear taught me not to trust. Phrases were written on each disc, and used to create the breast element in the work. Within the work, there are references to gender dysphoria, menses as independence and interdependence, and the female body as being in service.

This painting is from a series of works that are about what it means to be a woman and will exhibit in a solo exhibition in 2021 at the Granucci Gallery in Grass Valley, CA
