Maze dry pigment on jute 56 x 58 inches 1995
The idea for the series "Games of Disquiet" was drawn from the experience of witnessing the grave illness of my son, who was diagnosed with Hodgkin's disease. I realized, not for the first time, that life is a game in which the rules are unfathomable. Life plays with you, cat and mouse. The "game" seemed the right motif to express that sentiment.
Cancer teaches you about life, but, whatever the outcome, you are scorched in the process.
