  • 12.29.09-Still Standing Installation At JMH October-December 2009

    Still Standing is a photographic documentation of the cyclic nature of the chronic pain experience. Each frame demonstrates the artist's interpretation of a season in the cycle of coping with chronic pain. The work illustrates the balance that may be found in adaptation. The circular installment and positioning of each frame displays the endless repetition of the cycle and the grace that can be found in the fleeting moments of acceptance. Each photograph was taken by the artist to record locations on the road to recovery. (These are scenes from the Greenway Snowmobile trail that runs through Belfast, NY.) The images are framed by paper sculpture which amplifies the significance of the view at each location. The paper sculpture process was used as part of the artist's personal healing process to recover fine motor skills from May to September 2009. This work is intended for display in pain management and rehabilitation clinics.
    This installation displayed at Jones Memorial Hospital Rehabilitation Services from October -December 2009 and will be on display again as part of Facing Phases series. Location TBA
