Due to the results of brain trauma and recent surgery--I found myself exploring realms I had previously only observed others so doing.

After surgery I encountered stigma first hand and felt the nip of sociatal fear of the subject.

I am what is, and do not desire to be medicalized into comatose "normality."--R Romero

Rachael Romero: Current work and Exhibits

In three decades of leading inner city Art workshops with disenfranchised, neuro-diverse people, empathised with, advocated for, and admired those who have survived horror--and through their own resiliance-- gone on. I have also observed--in myself-- how embodied trauma--when examined through the creative process--can result in the transfiguration of personal and collective suffering -- transforming into the virtual power of creative becoming.
