Migraines and MRIs
About the artist:
Rachel Mindrup is a professional artist and resident assistant professor at Creighton University, in Omaha. She received her MFA from the Art Institute of Boston. Her current painting practice is about the study of the figure and portraiture in contemporary art and its relation to medicine. Her son's neurofibromatosis means spending a lot of time as a family in hospital and clinic settings.
About the artwork:
"Brain tumors cause so much pressure and exacerbate migraines, and it seems that with each MRI we experience 'scanxiety' awaiting the results."
