Art allows me to articulate the indescribable sensations of my illness. My art-making process is both meditative and therapeutic. I suffer from a rare stomach condition that damages the lining of my digestive tract. Conceptually, my prints are modeled after maps, diagramming my digestive system during the various stages of discomfort. Each print is an attempt to visualize the physical and psychological pain caused by my ailment.
Ali Medina, born in 1990, is a New York City based drawer and printmaker.
