Monster of Striving
Mixed Media on Wood
Still in recovery, my alter ego works to regain strength after a bout with walking pneumonia and months of polymyalgia rheumatica. I lifted physical therapy weights and had fun creating power tattoos and google eyed protozoas. A phoenix dragon wing rises up into the ribs while its beak pecks pelvic lines. I chose this wood board for the placement of its whorls (which became breasts and a hip socket) — thus determining the shape of this humanoid.
