SCULPTURE AT THE AMERICAN VISIONARY ART MUSEUM

Art in My Veins” is being exhibited in “The Big Hope Show” at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland through September 4, 2016. The sculpture, a life sized medical self–portrait, describes in a truthful but humorous way, Philip’s ongoing adventures with kidney failure, cancer, a heart condition and other medical annoyances. The work incorporates his medical postal envelopes, bandage faces and 10 years –worth of items saved from his medical procedures. As this show was being installed in Baltimore on September 18 2015, Philip was receiving his new kidney (thanks to his son, Ian) in California!
