HOPE: BREAST CANCER
Declaring Humanity’s Conquest Over Disease
Creating a visual expression of hope and substance, encapsulating a woman’s strength, this series was made with the Molecular Portrait of a breast cancer survivor.
The artist displays the experience of combating and surviving cancer as a physical, metaphysical, and existential condition.
The juxtaposition of before-and-after portraits represents the underlying dualism that persists in the struggle to overcome cancer, where a survivor’s gratefulness for a second chance at life is always accompanied by dark memories of fear.
The artist use of bright colors suggest an optimistic viewpoint.
