In Reconciling The Pain Body (Real) I had my partner tickle me with wet paint on his hands. This piece was inspired by the idea that a "Pain Body" exists within us all. This is the part of us that holds on to pain, reminds us of the bad, of past offenses put upon us and of what we have done to others, it holds on to guilt, and creates fear. Reconciling The Pain Body is a way to resolve issues within, to let go of the pain, to forgive myself and others, and see the light and beauty that exists inside of me as well as in the world around me. I decided to use tickling as the force of reconciliation, it turns all negativity into joy, and allows for the soul to breathe. More than ever I believe laughter is the souls true voice. The use of multi-colored wet paints are meant to create the rainbow, a messy spectrum to remind us that life is not perfect, but it is quite beautiful if we wish to see it that way.
