William Utermohlen was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 1995 yet he continued drawing. His last self portraits painted between 1995 and 2001 tell a unique tale of an implacable disease encroaching on to his mind and senses. With perseverance, courage and honesty the artist adapts his style and technique to the growing limitations of his perception and motor skills to produce images that communicate his predicament.
William’s artistic journey and how his art went from a figurative to minimalist style can be seen in the above pictures.Source: http://www.theurbn.com/2012/01/art-and-alzheimers/
