Caren Helene Rudman Artist Bio:
I have been a working artist for over 20 years. My work focuses on genetics, mother/daughter relationships, and the body. When I found out I was a carrier of the BRCA 1 gene mutation, my work delved further into the notions of genetic predispositions and facing our mortality. I began to question how far we go to remain healthy and my work reflects the decisions I have made in order to "Previve", a term used in the hereditary breast and ovarian circles when we preempt diagnosis by having surgeries. In my work, I explore themes of cancer as a metaphor, Mind/body connections and the way that art reflects how out of darkness comes light. I have curated an annual exhibit called voices &visions, standing on the bridge between health and disease which expands the notion of health and mortality.
