Financial rape and the toxic dump of economics makes us full of despair. We endure pain such as a fractured back, broken or herniated discs. We get arthritis, our organs deteriorate and we are sad and desperate. As a result of foreclosure, eviction, and loss of income, our body deteriorates at a faster pace. The person in the painting has removed her bodily organs and has put them on altars, like a ritual to her. Her plan is to replace the organs in her body so she can start over and make a new beginning.
