wow. compelling indeed. check this out.
below is the link to an article about the artist william utermohlen, who is now 73, who was diagnosed with alz in 1995. the portraits are currently being shown at the ny academy of medicine by the alzheimer's association.
the self-portraits that he painted while the disease progressed are truly remarkable. i'm not going to try to describe them. these pictures are beyond words. a true voice from within the alzheimer's consciousness.
