NEUROPLASTICITY SERIES  |  2013

"The first image of my son I ever saw was an MRI. My husband and I peered into the terrifying scan and saw a black sea of brain damage. This was our baby boy and he had suffered a stroke. Those first pictures of Charlie’s tiny beautiful brain were copied and reproduced and sent ahead to all of his specialists. Like an actor’s headshot in a program of a play we had yet to see, these images preceded him and shaped all of his first interactions with the world. Creating a thematic body of artwork inspired by Charlie’s struggle and triumph in the wake of his brain hemorrhage, Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy has been a tangible way for me to take back those first images and process them in a dark room of joy rather than one of fear."  - Sarah Greenman
