Inspired by the medical illustrations in journals and books, artist Alexander Gonzalez adapts and arranges anatomical figures to represent and tell an intimate story of his personal physical pain and its connectedness with various parts of his body and mind.

"As an artist, I find my motivation lies in the physical pain and trauma I have experienced throughout my time in the military and young adulthood. I find it’s easier to draw and paint to tell my story, than it is for me to talk about. As I grow older my physical pain becomes more prominent and so does my urge to create. I want to show you my story before that is no longer an option."

-Alexander Gonzalez
