Abstract (English)

"Halifax artist Robert Pope draws on his own experiences as a survivor of cancer in these haunting images of illness and healing. His paintings and drawings combine a realistic technique with visual symbols, heightened tonal contrasts and compositions often cropped into almost unbearable intimacy, in order to explore the emotional and psychological dimensions of cancer treatment. Organized by the Dalhousie Art Gallery, in conjunction with the 1991 Year of Medicine and the Humanities ad Dalhousie University, with support from the Nova Scotia Department of Tourism and Culture." -- Publisher' website.
