Synopsis:

Hollis Sigler, a leading feminist artist, was diagnosed in 1985 with breast cancer. After it recurred, she began a pictorial journal, now encompassing more than 100 works, which Art in America magazine called "one of contemporary art's richest and most poignant treatments of sickness and health.... Taking on a kind of religious conviction, her jewel-colored symbols imbue a death-haunted situation with miraculous, celebratory life." These works — and the commentaries on many of them — combine personal experience with family history, medical statistics, and political consciousness raising.

This inspiring volume brings together the 60 finest paintings with essays by the artist, Dr. Susan M. Love, and James Yood, who draws parallels with Frida Kahlo, another artist whose life and work were significantly affected by a medical condition.

Synopsis:

The artist's pictorial journal explores her experience with breast cancer, creating paintings and works on paper. With essays by leading breast cancer authority Susan Love, art critic James Yood, and Sigler herself.
