he learned in 1995 that he had Alzheimer’s disease, William Utermohlen,
an American artist living in London, immediately began work on an
ambitious series of self-portraits.
The artist pursued this
project over an eight-year period, adapting his style to the growing
limitations of his perception and motor skills and creating images that
powerfully documented his experience of his illness.
The resulting body of work serves as a unique artistic, medical, and personal record of one man’s struggle with dementia.”
