Info about exhibition
When Alzheimer strikes, life changes direction not only for the patient but for the whole family. The artist’s mother lived for 13 years after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. The process of gradual loss of memory and coordination of body functions including speech and mobility has deeply influenced the way the artist sees life and has a direct impact on his work.
These are some of the works presented by Nicholas Panayi who aims at illustrating the importance of preserving human contact through physical, emotional and spiritual means especially under difficult circumstances. It is a necessity for balance in society and to safeguard human dignity.
