The Visceral series delves into the intricate relationship between the mind and the body, specifically focusing on the memories embedded within our flesh. Through my artistic exploration, I seek to capture the essence of universal emotions and thoughts that every human being experiences throughout their journey in life. The human body serves as a vessel for our experiences, storing memories and emotions within its very fabric. These memories, both joyous and painful, shape our identities and influence our perceptions of the world. By delving into the memory of the flesh, I aim to unravel the complex tapestry of human existence.

Each piece in the Visceral series is a reflection of the human condition, exploring themes of love, loss, joy, fear, and everything in between. By diving into these universal emotions, I hope to create a sense of connection and empathy among viewers, reminding them of their shared humanity. Ultimately, my goal with the Visceral series is to create a visual narrative that speaks to the depths of the human experience. By exploring the memory of the flesh, I aim to provoke introspection, reflection, and a deeper understanding of ourselves and others.
