65 Red Roses / 2010

(Ganz unten mehr Infos in Deutsch).

This one.... remember this so well and it happened already 10 years ago!

2010 - A collaborative work by 65 artists that was donated to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. All artists painted an 8x10 panel which had to include a red rose. 65 artists - 65 red roses which is also the title of the blog by Eva Markvoort.

The title " 65 Red roses" was invented by children, among them patients as well. Not really being able to pronounce "cystic fibrosis" they simply heard and then called it "sixty-five roses" :).
Eva died in March 2009 but left behind a life legacy. She has touched the lives and hearts of so very many people worldwide through her blog and award-winning 2009 documentary film 65 Red Roses.

A unveiling reception in May at performance Works on Granville Island was attended by over 400 guests. Homage was paid to Eva, her life and love that she shared freely. The painting composed of the 65 8x10s was auctioned by Maynards in Vancouver in June and hangs in the foyer of the British Columbia Children's Hospital today. Posters were also made and were available for $65 each. All proceeds went to the Canadian Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Ich erinnere mich an dieses Gemeinschaftsprojekt, auch schon wieder 10 Jahre her!! Wir waren 65 Kuenstler, die all je eine Rose malen sollten, um dies in einem Gemeinschaftswerk zu verewigen. Es wurde versteigert und haengt heute im British Columbia Children's Hospital in Vancouver.

Der Titel "65 Red Roses" ist so etwas wie eine Klangmalerei und bezieht sich auf eine Erfindung von Kindern, die die Krankheit Cystic Firbosis nicht richtig aussprechen konnten und in der Bezeichnung "sixty-five roses" heraushoerten. Daher der Name.
