Most of my paintings derive from several sources infecting me over months, or even years. Over ths past summer, I have been struggling with issues of idenity and self actualization. Moving forward, I remember seeing an uncle at a recent wedding who has been confirmed with lung cancer. Also, this past month, an Aunt has passed after a two year battle with kidney failure. Two years ago,at this time, another Aunt passed from cancer.
On my ride home this week, I listened to http://www.radiolab.org/2010/may/17/ and this conjured up images of mutation and metamorphosis.
I feel my body succumbing to cancer - to the inevitalble break down of the self - to not becoming a promised potential - to the end that is well overcome by the means.
