9/10: Between Technology and Dreams at Notre Dame College

Meeting of the Spines
  • Meeting of the Spines,
When the spinal disease Scheuermann’s kyphosis limited Andrew Reach’s mobility and caused too much pain for him to continue a career as an architect, he taught himself Photoshop and soon made it his primary mode of expression. “This was the beginning of an odyssey of self-awareness and personal expression that continues in my work today,” he says. “The ability to do my art is my refuge and personal oasis.” Reach uses a large-format printer to produce images of complex skeletal forms rendered in intense colors. He says his early works were biological meditations on his body’s awareness of the healing process. “I found myself inventing skeletal structures of my imagination,” he says. Between Technology and Dreams opens with a reception from 5-7 p.m. and continues through October 8 at the Performing Arts Center of Notre Dame College (4545 College Rd., South Euclid, 216.373.5320). Admission is free. — Michael Gill
