Scars

Each line is now the actual experience with its own innate history. It does not illustrate—it is the sensation of its own realization.

I am sometimes embarrassed by the scars on my body, but similar to the lines that Twombly painted, they have an innate history that is not evident to the viewer. The scars are the remnants of the experience, each with a singular story that has shaped who I am today.
