Many people find art to have therapeutic properties. In the case of Kristina Bell DiTullo’s artwork, that statement is even more accurate. With background in art-therapy, the American artist uses various types of adhesive bandages to create intricate compositions and patterns, in what she calls the Bandage series.
“I am interested in the intricate ways we attempt to insulate ourselves from experiencing psychological pain. When we withhold, lie, and are in denial a layer of defense is created. Sometimes this layer can be deceptively beautiful despite the trauma below. These pieces relate to the layers of protection that we build over time to mask our experiences”, states DiTullo on her site.
