Our drawings broadly examine healing practices within conventional medicine (e.g., surgery) and faith (e.g., the laying on of hands), as well the administration of care through partnership and love. Portraying only our own bodies, we reimagine accounts of miraculous [woundless] healing, as well as healing that requires wounding, as conventional surgery does. We use the bathtub as a site of medical, baptismal, and erotic potential, and appropriate forms of medical illustration to represent how we, as patients, envision (or misapprehend) the information we receive from doctors. At the thresholds of internal/external, phenomenological/physiological, and erotic/clinical, we find the lover who is also the pathologized specimen, the desire that is also grief, and this flesh which is both self and stranger.


We often fabricate our reference imagery through digital collage, which enables us to transplant tissue, lifting the skin from one body and grafting it onto another. In physically collaged works, we enact this same process with parts cut from our own drawings. We remove and resection, augment and implant. With our fingers gloved in latex, we tenderly administer chalk pastel to paper, intricately knitting flesh together from high-saturation pigments. The rawness and humility of paper and chalk dust parallel the viewer's own tenuous corporeality. Supporting and questioning each other through the obliteration and retrieval of our bodies through drawing, we reveal to each other what we cannot see of ourselves, and serve as the stewards of one another's flesh.
