Copper Plate Bandaids

This piece is a part of the collection of red etchings about dermatillomania or compulsive skin picking. Copper Plate Bandaids is a piece about trying to heal. The ghost printing correlates to past wounds that have healed or scars that have faded. The darker printed bandaids represent fresh wounds. Both kinds of prints appear together on the same piece of paper. This denotes the cyclical nature of the never ending healing process connected to suffering from compulsive skin picking.
