Can’t believe it is nearly 10 years since since my exhibition at Bundaberg Regional Art Gallery (BRAG). The exhibition was Fragments of Vision (2011), a cathartic “coming out” after experiencing severe vision loss due to strokes on both my optic nerves. This painting is “MRI Tomb” – acrylics & mixed media on canvas (two panels). My eye trauma was the condition NAION. Luckily my vision loss stabilised, and today I can still see the world, and still paint, albeit with 90% less sight. But I value my little bit of vision more than I did when it was normal. We don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone. Happy Days.
