Andrew Reach – Finalist In Art Takes Soho Competition

I’m so proud that my husband Andrew Reach is a finalist in the art competition “Art Takes Soho”.  He entered 6 artworks (shown below). His art will be shown digitally with the other finalist:
Wednesday, September 26th, 2018
6pm – 10pm
45 Lispenard St #1w
New York, New York

What I find so amazing about the new work he is creating is during this period of our life, the complications from his disease are insidious. His pain is off the charts as is his quality of life. We fight every day to have a nice day and somewhere in this amazing soul, in a body that doesn’t stop attacking him from within, this kaleidoscope of wonder and magic comes out.

Article on Truthout.org about Digital Art and Culture: by Max Eternity featuring Andrew Reach & Christiane Paul, Curator of New Media at the Whitney Museum

Factory by Andrew Reach

When Andrew began doing his art out of his hospital bed, one of the ways that I inspired him to work through his severe pain was that I would say, “Someday you’re going to be in the Whitney Museum in New York.” I had put all his art on our walls in our home in Miami Shores, Fl. Little does one know what lies in their future.

This year has been filled, like many of us, with great difficulty. We were told that Andrew now has a complication to his first disease, Scheuermann’s Kyposis, which is called the Viking gene which is affecting Andrew’s left leg motor skills and muscles. With pain beyond his normal pain, which means he was beyond the pain; he was the pain. Two times this year his right leg was affected and he could not walk. With multiple shots and a tremendous amount of physical therapy, he has gotten himself back up. Living with such pain is a horrible place to be.

So Andrew and I continue with the life that we now have which is being happy for what we have and never looking back to what has been lost. The secret to life is to keep going and always to see the wonder. The magic is all around us.

We were thrilled when this article came out. Both of us laughed when we saw it. There was Christiane Paul, curator of New Digital Media from the Whitney Museum of American Art, speaking on a podcast mentioning Andrew Reach, as an example of digital art in the United States, in the same story. Life is filled with so many circles.

At a time when extreme, economic austerity measures are being considered and/or enacted by a number of Western governments – Greece, Spain, Germany, the US, and elsewhere – one has to wonder why, in the UK, a collective of government agencies in England have just allocated $815,000,000 for digital art and culture. Read more…
