Mobius Family, Child.

Part of a trilogy that includes Man, Woman, and Child, this photograph is part of my collection exploring how I felt before and after back surgery -- sometimes in pain, sometimes resigned, rarely fun, and many times bored. More often than not, the pain is stuck on an endless Mobius loop.

For this mixed-media artwork, I paint clear and viscous oils onto warped glass, photograph the subject through the glass, and then print the image onto an archival cotton-rag paper.
