My last three years have been spent fighting potentially fatal lung disease. This had reached the point I was too exhausted to work, but early this year I got a lung transplant! I had been waiting, listed for transplant for two years. My art reflects a faith of a kind. I believe in the elusive. I believe in the poetic. I believe in ecstasy and in joy. Color is life. My dark experiences have deepened the kind of beauty I am seeking. Lung transplants are the most risky transplants. They come with a significant risk of fatal complications. My recent work has been inspired by the recent experiences of loss and the treachery of the body. Prior to transplant, I did a what I call the "Embodiment Series" of paintings which I will be posting on Saatchi Art as my recovery progresses. I prepared myself for my hospital stay by getting some small art supplies. While in the hospital, I was hooked up to multiple IV lines, and feeding tubes. I was on a ventilator three times. The work I did were abstractions inspired by my body, the medical equipment, the views out my window, the folds in my bed sheets and so forth. I am currently working on some digital posters I will be posting for sale on Saatchi based on the hospital work, which I call the "Hospital Suite".
