Fifty or Older, You May be at Risk

As a human in my seventies, I have a heightened awareness of the aging process and the closeness of death. As an artist I'm interested in exploring those themes through my work. Fueled by my imagination I have depicted "cells" as they move through a lifespan or battle disease. The images can appear quite beautiful which is at odds with ideas of loss and sorrow connected with aging and the end of life.
