The following examples of my creative works are representative of my artistic interests, and the recurring themes that inspire me: bones, detritus, decay, synesthetic phenomena and other neurocognitive experiences, poetics, rebirth, and reimagining/reframing the past.
Bones are the most enduring component of bodies; left on their own to decompose, they can persist for millennia. Diagnostic radiographs of skeletal architectures can serve as a form of portraiture, revealing the body’s deepest, most tenacious structures. Yet, medical practices retain both tacit and actual ownership of these highly personal images. This places the subject of the portrait, the patient, in a deferential role in regard to interpreting meaning from depictions of their body, and descriptions of their pathologies. Additionally, radiographs are destroyed when they are no longer of medical use, rendering them a form of ephemera. The Radiographica series explores grayscale x-ray images as perceived through the lens of synesthesia by neurodivergent artist CC Hart
The Bone Stories is a collaborative project in development anchored in the concept of narrative medicine. What stories might your bones tell?
