OPEN DOOR GALLERY: BOSTON
EXHIBITED IN COLLABORATION WITH THE CEI GALLERY
In collaboration with the Cultural Equity Incubator Gallery, Open Door has opportunities to showcases the works of emerging and established artists with disabilities and works to convene the community in conversations around disability, identity, and culture.
From the Artist
This exhibition brings together two bodies of work, Latency and I Don’t Want To Paint A Silver Lining Around It, for the first time. Latency explores hidden disabilities, companionship, stigma, and the medicalized body. Printing my medical imagery reclaims my agency as a patient. I create these images with love and care, and in the process, the parts of me that are seen as deficient in the medical world are transformed into living temporal pieces of beauty. I Don’t Want To Paint A Silver Lining Around It explores my experience of being immunocompromised and high-risk in the pandemic. The subject matter highlights isolation during prolonged sheltering in place, daily walks, masking, doctor visits, medical treatment, changing warning signs at the pharmacy, and rest.
All of the images were created through chlorophyll printing which uses photosynthesis to print images onto leaves. Through this process I connect disability and nature, claiming disability as a valuable part of diversity.
