Theresa BrownGold is a portrait painter.She uses art to start dialog around social issues –healthcare, immigration war and dying. Her project is called Art As Social Inquiry. Since 2008 the artist has used her art project to look at healthcare. Each portrait tells a different and personal story about accessing healthcare in the US. As human beings we naturally connect to the large, expressionistic canvases. These painted faces draw us into the question we avoid asking ourselves, “If what happened to this person happened to me, what would be my position on accessing healthcare?” The hope being that with personal connection comes more enlightened problem-solving.
