Waterhouse & Dodd is pleased to present an exhibition benefitting The Michael J. Fox Foundation, the world’s largest funder of Parkinson’s research. Partnering with Team Fox, the Foundation’s grassroots fundraising arm, a portion of the sales from the exhibition will go directly to Parkinson’s research efforts. Paintings, drawings and photographs of five artists represented by Waterhouse & Dodd will be featured. Two of these artists – Tom Shannon and Jay Zukerkorn – have Parkinson's disease, a progressive degenerative neurological disorder that affects more than 5 million people worldwide.
Jay Zukerkorn was diagnosed in 2004. Born in Hawaii, Zukerkorn has been a successful commercial photographer for 25 years and Waterhouse & Dodd is the first gallery to showcase his fine art endeavors. Zukerkorn’s first series Movement Disorder began as a response to his initial diagnosis, as he accentuated his condition by deliberately blurring the images in bright, colorful beach scenes. In his new series, The Road I Am On, the photographs appear abstract, highlighting the contrast between dark pavements and bright, crackled paint. The series is another leg of his journey through artistic reinvention and rediscovery.
Work by gallery artists Doug Argue, Karen Gunderson and Kim Keever will also be featured.
