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

One of my early full headpiece masks, Robirda, painted by my lovely and talented wife Karen, is now residing at Momento Mori, Oddities, Collectibles, Antiques on Loveland, Ohio. Owner Greg Johns runs a sweet shop that holds seemingly endless delights and curiosities. It’s an honor to have a few of our pieces there.   Memento Mori
