Lecturer Megan Hildebrandt presents work in an exhibition at the LIVESRONG Foundation, co-presented by Art.Science.Gallery. The show will be on view April 16 – May 30, 2015.

Hildebrandt states:

My works on paper examine autobiography via repetition and ritual. I am interested in creating proof of my existence on paper. A litany of marks that monitor moments and months - I mark time in this work. In Counting Radiation, I process the experience of being diagnosed with and treated for cancer at 25. The rolling landscape of tally marks counts the time spent in chemotherapy and CT scans; my memories put onto paper via abstraction.
