Description
Watching from Alzheimer's labyrinth, frail light rounds from deep lost umbers. A vulnerable realism betrays impressions of love.

  • This collection of paintings chronicles the last 6 months of my mother’s life as I witnessed her agonizing path through Alzheimer’s.  Evangelina’s symptoms came years earlier, the dangerous nature of the disease veiled by whimsical repetitions of speech and charming recollections of youth.
     
    Fire is used as a metaphor of Alzheimer’s sporadically across the pieces, from a small flame to a raging firestorm to a final wisp.
     
    The end of conscious perception is symbolized by a dark palette, rich umbers crimsons, and indigos suggest the impermanent nature of our existence.  
    Luminous streaks of blue split the void refracting light through sorrowful darkness.
