Plates is an examination of the process, both in my art and physical self, that I have undergone in the last few years. I started having episodes where a pressure would be in my abdomen, numbness in my hands, feet and jaw, lightness in my chest and head, and in some instances I would pass out. I started going for tests, scans and consultations. In the end, most of it can be attributed to anxiety and I have learned to have a more careful approach to my thoughts and actions. I requested copies of all the scans and images that were available from my tests, and sorted through them looking for parts of myself that I connected with beyond the bone and tissue. These plates are those images, cropped square and printed on PVC media, that I then painted on. Every one of these plates are a piece of me. A piece of my body and a piece of my mind.
