    brain tumors.. i wanted if it came from playing with the latex, resins...
    a person i worked for was telling me about the old days she was from.. 60s like Hesse..and they would play with heating polyesters and things, without any masks.. many people developed cancer including her

    anyway i like the irregular lines in these works
    but there is something about the stark one black line in the first one.. thin and getting much thicker. i feel a lot more minimalism there ^_^
