"Blades of the Mill" Collaborative Exhibition
"Blades of the Mill" is a series of eighteen mixed media paintings representing my brother Bob‚ four months into his eight-month treatment for Mantle Cell Lymphoma. Each of the eighteen paintings contains an image of Bob and a line of poetry that signifies a major turning point in his life. The exhibition became a collaborative effort between Bob and me when Bob agreed to be my muse‚ edit my poetry‚ and write the text for each painting which highlights key stages of his life.
