It is tempting to think of cancer as an army of cartoon creepy crawlies running around the blood stream wearing clown shoes and picking fights with other well mannered cells and mowing them down like cattle ranchers wiping out the law abiding townspeople in a John Wayne western. The deadly fox in the chicken coop, the benzene in the village water supply or the cartoon worm grinning at you from its secret recess in the apple. But over the last seven months I`ve come to know differently. One of my doctors attributed the disease to Fate, another to random chance. I've come to believe it is a hugely powerful focusing agent with a simple, pure message. Get your life together. It is all that we know that we have in the moment and it is precious and time eventually runs out. I have learned from the experience and my prognosis is good. Created for my Oncologist and Surgeon. They will never appreciate it as much as I do them. Printed at 50 X 50 on rice paper and finished in encaustic medium.

Abi Katon I was really shocked and speechless. A bold statement once the bitterness of life and you seem to take the fight to continue living!
A very rare artwork, so personal and original! Surely one of your masterpiece!

Dana Winkelman avatar
Dana Winkelman Jared. By far, the most powerful artistic statement you have made (my first impression) and deeply personal (as are all your works). I am in agreement with you. The present is all there is and it is easy to forget, until you are reminded that it is finite. The thing is that you have made the journey palpable for the rest of us in a way that (to me) seems like magic. I am in awe of your talent. I hope to see many more examples of it. Your friend. Dana...

Alexander Kolesnik Expressive kaleidoscope of episodes, lyrical, nostalgic, lost, false hopes... Like Fellini in Amarcord.

Jos Letschert It is a very personal piece of art, Jared. Difficult to say more as still has been said. Nine stages of life! Art is confronting, communicating, provoking, comforting, struggling, and so much more. Thanks for sharing this.

Aleksandar Budjevac Because you and your work, dear Jared, I'll have to buy the largest monitor in the world. But it certainly will not replace the size of my head. Thank you for such thoughts and ideas you share with me, among other authors. Torrents and rivers, emerge with its power from rice papers. Well done.
