Art of Bandaging is a testament to an early point in my
career when I had few resources and had to use whatever
materials were at hand to make art. During this period I became
a kind of cultural salvager, using common materials and resources
to fashion ephemeral works that spoke to my situation. Art can
offer a certain kind of redemption. Art of Bandaging is about the
art of healing, and the healing power of art.
