After witnessing my son's terrible squalid journey into a craven addiction, I wanted to work with addicts and those like me, who love them, to paint them and ask: what is happening for you? How do you do what you do? How are you coping with this life? There is precious little to like about addiction; we see addicts as irredeemable, lepers. This exhibition is a witness to the stories and experiences of those affected by addiction. Addicts and those who love them. We are many.

For this second showing of the Addicts exhibition, we will show new work telling more stories. We will host talks and workshops around addiction for all to attend. For both addicts and those who love them.

Photographer Michael McAlister and artist Marie Paul are also exhibiting work about their own experiences of addiction and recovery. Both are artists and both are represented in the exhibition from their days of addiction.

The exhibition is powerful, raw, kind and not without hope. We are looking to understand, and to witness each journey, our own included. I am painting each sitter as a saint.
