This piece is reflective of both my experience as a transgender artist as well as my struggle with mental illness and trauma. It is a reflection of myself in a crucifixion pose which represents trauma and turmoil. The wedge shaped tear shows that the body is little more than a distructible object. The true essence of self being represented by the red sphere. This piece is a statement about the body being nothing more that a mundane vessel, which plays in to my gender transition as well as the daily struggle of coping with trauma and suicide. However, it is only half of the picture.
