In this series, I have created linocut illustrations with linoleum blocks. In my early life I had aspired to be a surgeon, however, life had other plans for me. With this medium, I have found a meditative experience with using various tools to cut away unwanted sections in a similar way a surgeon would in the human body. It’s my understanding that it is not as complex, dangerous or as rewarding as saving a human life, however, it helps me to connect with a lost art of medical surgery I had hoped to learn.
