Sacrum No. 1, 2013

graphite paste on paper, 46" x 58"

Contact Regarding Availability

This piece is part of a larger series in which I fingerprint each finger repetitively on one sheet of paper, which is placed an inch apart from the corresponding finger’s printed paper, creating a negative space in between the two. This series explores the notion of identity and the difficulty of categorizing one’s identity. While fingerprinting is the foremost way to capture one’s identity, by fingerprinting myself with graphite paste I invalidate my prints on the paper. In this way, coupled with the gradation of tone, the prints become much more about the process of their creation. The sacrum, meaning “holy bone” in Latin, is a large bone at the base of the spine, and was historically given as part of animal sacrifices.
