Jim Riswold: Art for Oncologists

RICHARD SPEER

716 NW Davis St.
 
At least three people and some bubble-bath-infused hot water could fit inside the oversize “candy dish” at the heart of Jim Riswold’s Art for Oncologists. The “candies” the dish contains are giant heart-shaped sculptures, each inscribed with the name of a chemotherapy drug. This is a very personal piece and exhibition for Riswold, a longtime leukemia and prostate cancer survivor. He hints at the tenacity required for this 13-year battle royale in the piece Don Quixote Fights Cancer. In the photograph, a figurine of Cervantes’ oblivious hero sits astride a brightly colored chemo drip. Fighting cancer, Riswold implies, may be a bit like tilting at windmills; it requires a steadfast belief that eventually, against all odds, one will succeed. Through Nov. 2.
