Glamour Shot/Fasciotomy self portrait
CW: Body horror, nudity
I am an interdisciplinary visual artist and bruja. My current visual work documents subversive medical narratives and trauma as meme through ink drawings. As an art witch my focus concerns femmecentric protective medicine and weaponization of orthopedics. I work with handcraft, art rituals and graphic narrative.
