"Find the Medicine for the Poison of Imprisoned Pain," explores emotional and physical suffering as a form of poisoned imprisonment. Using thread-art on hand-dyed fabric and a layering of translucent material, a contorted figure becomes jailed within a vessel; the symbol of entrapment caused by the poison of pain. A snake, the emblem of medicine, coiled around the human pain-containing bottle becomes an alchemical crucible that serves as a catalyst for transformation and healing.
