It’s such a simple act, we are rarely even aware of the presence of our own breathing. In some ways we take it for granted. We pollute our lungs with toxins and occasionally give them respite in the sweet air of our natural environment. For many, it is not until things go wrong that we start to take note and count how many breaths we have left. The sudden awareness of one’s own mortality demands us to savour each coming breath as a gift.
This print is dedicated to all of those who strive for that next breath. It is for those that force themselves to swim those endless laps in the pool to complete their final brick before Ironman. It is for those that push themselves to their absolute limit where their legs feel like they’re going to fall off, their heart feels like it’ll beat out of their chest and their lungs sear and gasp for another breath. It is for those that have been diagnosed with cancer and will not take this as a death sentence. It is also for those individuals who are there to support loved ones when it is time to take their last breath. To all of you, breathe deeply and relish this gift of life!
“Breath” was created to aid in the fundraising efforts of Ironcops for Cancer, a team of police officers and civilian members who raise funds for the Canadian Cancer Society and compete in Ironman Canada every second year. Partial proceeds from the sale of this print will be added to the Ironcops for Cancer donation to the Canadian Cancer Society. “Breath” is available exclusively through the Inuit Gallery in Vancouver, BC.
