Abstract

The work explores the body and its limitations through the lens of printmaking.The surface of the body acts as a barrier between our internal and external selves exposing the vulnerabilities between mind and body. As fragile and receptive beings, the past builds up and manifests itself through our daily actions and repetitive tendencies. There is a strong desire to control our appearance and physical signs of well-being.

As fragile and receptive beings, the past builds up and manifests itself through our daily actions and repetitive tendencies.
