Kindertotentanz: Chemotherapie I etching 3.5 x 5 inches 1989
Kindertotentanz: Chemotherapie Metastatic Hodgkin's - In Memoriam watercolor, pen, ink 20 x 32 inches 1991
Ten years ago, I trained as a pediatrician on the cancer ward of a children's hospital. I witnessed children in pain and children dying. The anger and helplessness I felt compelled me to begin the "Kindertotentanz:" a series of etchings, watercolors, and oils that expressed my ambivalence about modern medicine. In this ongoing series of works, I have an outlet; they drain my rage. They shout what I cannot say aloud.
