Umberto Crenca will exhibit a series of 61 small-scale framed drawings created between August and October 2016 while confined to his bed with debilitating back pain. The multi-media drawings are the product of his efforts to stay sane in the face of severe and inescapable pain, physical limitation and social isolation. They chart the progression of his experience from the initial descent into this acute condition and lack of clarity about the cause, to the eventual diagnosis, to the anticipation and hope of relief through surgery, to the postoperative healing period.
