Open Art Calls Accepted Artists
Artist Carol Wylie
Harry and Marian
This piece, entitled “Harry and Marian” resulted from my documentation of the last months of a man and his wife as he battled cancer; a battle he ultimately lost. In this work I, as artist/witness, pay homage to the gravitas of the fight and the beauty of their relationship. Life is seldom more poignant and precious than when it teeters on the precipice of death.
My work has always been about ‘seeing ‘ and ‘hearing’; bearing witness, and the record of interaction between my subjects and my self. I exist in my mark making, they exist in the image, and the result is a hybrid inhabited by both. The trace of this shared experience lives in the work.
