"Structural Abnormalities" Series was created from 1987 to 1992, when
Ted was experiencing tremendous pain in his bones and joints. The work
has been referenced to Mexican Day of the Dead calacas (skeletons),
which, although interesting, is an incorrect comparison. Ted's imagery
comes from an internal source of pain and confusion over possible
medical procedures being recommended to him and how his medical problems
would play out over his lifetime.
