I am doing a duo exhibition with my former teacher Kit Watson next year. She has been struggling with dementia, and our show will focus on that subject. This piece was inspired by the following conversation I had with her last October.
Tenyoh: Some choose death over becoming undignified burdens. I am one of them. On the other hand, suicide does not seem to have come across your mind. Where do you get the strength to keep on going despite what may lay ahead of you?
Kit: I won’t kill myself. It will be awful for my children. Chances are I will go to nursing home when I can no longer live alone, but even there I will find someone to enjoy spending time with and something I can look forward to working on every day. It may not be art any more, but I will find something.
Kit will maintain her smile even if everything else may fall apart. Her strength gave me courage.
