“Face Object #1 ‘‘ (archival inkjet print from digital photo), by David Weinberg, in the show “If You Could See What I See,’’ by Louise and David Weinberg, at Galatea Fine Art, Boston, May 1-June 2. The gallery says that the pictures in the show were produced during Louise Weinberg’s 15-year struggle with a rare neurologic disease that shares some features with Parkinson’s Disease. This illness and side-effects of medications have affected both her physical abilities and her mental state, “producing vivid hallucinations and altered perception’’.
Galatea says that through discussion with Louise, David Weinberg has produced photographic images that “attempt to depict the visions that Louise experiences. Louise has arranged fragments cut from her drawings and paintings into collages that spring from her unconscious. The works arise from the many degrees of cognitive changes stimulated by the medications treating the neurological illness.’’
