Head and Neck Cancer Sculpture

My recently completed piece for the Brandon C. Gromada Head and Neck Cancer Foundation to help raise a few bucks in an upcoming fundraising auction. The goal of the foundation is to generate funds for the development of innovative and more effective treatments which lead to cures for head and neck cancers, most of which are some type of squamous cell cancer (SCC).

If you wish to learn more about the subject or perhaps make a donation here is a link.

This piece itself, as yet untitled, is constructed of cloth, plaster, wire, “Durabond 90”, and acrylics. The web pattern implies the metal mask a patient wears during radiation treatments for head & neck cancer.

“Robirda” by David Earl Johnson of masqueHysteria

“She had blue skin,
And so did he.
He kept it hid
And so did she.
They searched for blue
Their whole life through,
Then passed right by-
And never knew.”
Shel Silverstein, Every Thing on It

~ Life is short

Vanessa Cardui - Painted Lady

“She liked being reminded of butterflies. She remembered being six or seven and crying over the fates of the butterflies in her yard after learning that they lived for only a few days. Her mother had comforted her and told her not to be sad for the butterflies, that just because their lives were short did not mean they were tragic. Watching them flying in the warm sun among the daisies in their garden, her mother had said to her, see, they have a beautiful life. Alice liked remembering that.”
~Lisa Genova, Still Alice

“It is not revolutions and upheavals that clear the road to better days,
but revelations, and the lavishness of someone’s soul inspired and ablaze.”

Memento Mori at Venue 222

“Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell and when you get angry, get good and angry.

Try to be alive. You will be dead soon enough.”

~ William Saroyan, American writer (1908 – 1981)
