This work is part of an experimental project and I started when I volunteered with MedShare. This wonderful organization donates medical materials to medical centers around the world. As an volunteer artist, I had to create a piece of artwork using discarded medical equipment. I found this thick plastic tubes and I chose to create these very bright, textural paintings. We held a fundraiser for a medical center in Sierra Leone so I looked into West African patterns to add some colorful inspiration.
