It has been five years since my surgery, radiation therapy
and -- I hope -- cure. In that time, I have made dramatic
strides in my artwork.
Translucent/Jerusalem Studio and Six Bottles are from my
"post-cancer" artwork. These compositions of bottles and jars; with
their intriguing shapes, show how light transfuses the glass,
creating a "presence" in these vessels.
Art helped me get through the trauma of having cancer. My art
always demanded concentration and dedication, leading me out of
myself and into a realm of inspiration and creativity. I didn't
realize how my art helped me transcend anxiety and despair. It
energized and excited me in a period that mitigated against emotions.
