  6. Shed. 9”x12”. menstrual blood on paper made from panties. 2014.

    Despite being the most normal, least violent, and least dangerous instance of blood leaving the body, menstruation is extraordinarily taboo. The experience is full of emotion and memory – a powerful cycle, linked even to our conception of the passing of time. Yet it is barely ever represented or discussed, and our understanding of reproductive health in general is still quite lacking. This drawing is a challenge to the shame, confusion, and disgust surrounding human bodies, women’s bodies in particular.

    The paper itself is linked to recovery from another kind of bodily anxiety – it was made from a pair of my underwear during one of the Peace Paper Project’s panty pulping workshops in 2013, a community based art therapy endeavor to support survivors and demand an end to all sexual and domestic violence.

    I have found that working with materials that are very close to me, whether that means my clothing or my blood itself, is part of a healing process as a woman and an artist in a misogynistic world, and a route towards finding home within my self.
