Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Rosemarie Fortney

“My love of making art continues to grow well-beyond my studies at Cardinal Stritch and Mt. Mary Universities in the Midwest.

“My means of artistic expression cannot help but be influenced by the progression of vision loss from Retinitis Pigmentosa.

“Limited tunnel-vision which some may view as a “limiting factor” of RP, I find artistically “frames” and presents to me dynamic statements.

“During this lingering time of Covid my intention was to hike and explore with my guide dog, Vega, while inhaling fresh air and to connect each of my steps with the earth.  Pleasant surprising Artful images presented in my 5° of focused central vision, some very near, others from a distance…come, look through my eyes.”
