Gristle Tattoo+Art Gallery presents Grace Lang “True Cuts”. Opening Friday October 21 7pm – 10pm.

“True Cuts” refers to the most vulnerable parts of us, the places where our insides creep out through the skin. The cut, or wound, has long been an important image in Grace’s work both for its immediate visual impact and its metaphoric possibilities. Instantly recognized, a cut is a tangible visual representation of experienced pain. The evolution of a wound into a scab into a scar has a clear parallel with the process of living through and healing from a difficult experience, physical or emotional. Requiring time and care to heal properly, the scar is quite literally evidence of personal maturation. The internal forces its way out and the external world rebuilds the skin as best it can, leaving a piece of us forever altered. On our bodies and on our psyches, “True Cuts” are the most pure and cathartic memories we are forced to carry.
