Artist Statement Imagine that you have just been told that you have cancer in 3 of your organ systems- What do you do? What Alex Goldenberg did was paint. Yes he went for treatment too but, what was important for him was to paint. Painting was a vital force for him; it made "a life worth living". During his chemo treatments Alex painted bigger and brighter and bolder than he ever had before with bands of color. He owned his dream as an artist. His painting "Bad Girl" outlines his healing journey. "Read" the painting from top to bottom, left to right. He wrote on the sides thanking his wife, our 7 yo son and his siblings and "Who is at the bottom of this?" at the bottom of the painting. He wrote a profile for the painting on the ArtPrize 2015 website. He put the painting on the top of his car, drove it from NJ to MI, drove back to NJ for a an art tour, then back to bring it home. Alex did not die from cancer, he lived with it, until it was time to let go. 1949-2016
