Portfolio > Current Work

This work addresses the subject of infertility and the emotions and treatments which follow this extremely common but rarely discussed medical diagnosis. Infertility is often felt as a direct failure on the part of the woman to produce an offspring. With this work I intend to describe the guilt, fear, anxiety, and profound unknown of entering into one of the most personal of diagnostics and treatment, while also showing tremendous appreciation and compassion for the female body.
Using the reproductive organs of flora paired with parts of my own body, I relate aspects of the experience of infertility consultation and treatment. Each piece is a direct reaction to some specific feeling, terminology, or event within the process.
