Hand-signed letter of authenticity
The idea for this series and exhibit emerged during the first year of the artist's diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Adjusting to living with a chronic illness as well as breaking the news to loved ones, he coped by donning a positive mental attitude. This new work represents the brave faces we put on in the hope that things will turn out okay. In addition, the artist created these images to leave viewers with a good feeling, even though we are all faced with our own difficulties.
