Artist statement:

I am interested in the experience of negotiating the physical and emotional balance between sickness and health. My drawings examine organisms attacked by cancer. Using scientific material that involves cancer related databases, microscopic views, histopathology images, Kaplan-Meier curves, 2D and 3D modeling, I combined these visual facts about cancer into expressive images in order to create something meaningful and emotionally insightful.

Maess Anand, Metastasis II, 180 x 150 cm, marker and pen on paper, 2014

The notion of  “time arrow” is traditional to philosophy and art. However, it is closely connected with our life span expectation. Classical literature, such as “Magic Mountain” of Thomas Mann stress that time perception is very different for healthy and gravely ill persons. In the case of cancer patients it is further complicated by an “obscure” terminologies of oncology: stages, life expectation, therapy outcome, metastasis, remission etc. It is my goal to facilitate the comprehension of this realities by my art.

Invasive ductal carcinoma, 100 x 70 cm, marker and pen on paper, 2018

Some of reactions of audience, but also my personal experience before I was given a free of cancer verdict, suggest that people in face of cancer may try to live more intense life, as it was formulated by a famous cardiologist Marek Edelman that one “To outwit God”. I first focused on studying cancer as an art subject in 2013. The drawings also elicited responses from many individuals about their experience with cancer. 

These stories, based on direct experience or those of loved ones, centered on the anxiety of waiting for results, facing the possibility of metastasis and the dawning awareness of how much time might be left to the patient and their families. I believe this anxiety, as well as the accompanying search for hope and strength, are universal human experiences and that art may help to alleviate.
