Wounds

Whenever you think things can't possibly get any worse, they always do. Wounds was the first of three books created in the wake of the murder by beheading of Nick Berg in Iraq. Although I have no connection with the family, the sometimes insensitive media coverage sent me into further depression. I spent two weeks painting, gouging, scraping, binding and crying.
