Rachel E. Heberling 

Easton, PA 

"Ivy"

Original Hand-Pulled Print, Photopolymer Intaglio, 2017

 

Ivy is known to be destructive, just like the wayward growths of endometriosis; nonetheless, the flower in Rachel Heberling's piece shows its fortitude despite being weighed down by an invader. "This piece was created after my second, major laparoscopy for Stage II Endometriosis," Heberling, a New Jersey-based art studio director, confides. "The image is inspired by my time recuperating at my family's home, where morning glory vines twisted all around the railings. The image of the flower symbolizes hope for less pain, and maybe even a cure someday."
