While recovering from my kidney donation surgery, we went to CVS to get a few things I needed. We couldn't help but marvel and joke about their uncommonly long receipts. Always trying to find humor in life when possible, I decided to make a painting comparing my 3" scar to the length of a receipt, which is often many feet long. This painting is created with acrylic skins of enlarged photoshopped photos of my scar, and hand and machine stitched thread, on stiffened monoprinted fabric.
Imagining My Scar as Long as a CVS Receipt measures 3.25” x 40” and is mixed media on stiffened fabric. Below is a detail.
