A wonderful exhibition created by Macmillan and cancer patients around the paintings of Michele Angelo Petrone, loaned by the ONCA gallery in Brighton.
Michele was a professional artist who exhibited at the Royal Academy and the South Bank in London.
At the age of 30, Michele was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Disease. He said that nothing had prepared him for the pain, difficulty and fear which followed this diagnosis or for the many years of treatment after periods of remission and relapse, which included high dose chemotherapy and stem cell transplantations.
As he lay in isolation in his hospital room, he used his skills as an artist to express the feelings engulfing him.
Do not miss this exhibition, it is truly heart-wrenching
