Jeff Nye: Recovery, 2010-2014, oil on canvas, 60" x 60"

On May 3rd, 2009 we experienced the loss of our daughter, Angelica, in the delivery room. The experience dramatically shifted my relationship with art, my studio practice and my curatorial work. To get back into the studio after a 9 month period when work was not an option, emotionally or mentally, I decided to use painting to confront the moments and spaces in the hospital that my wife, Michelle, and I encountered. It occured to me that hospitals are spaces of transition - grief is similarly a transitional state.

More images to come as we develop the website (and finish the work).
