David McCauley exhibition to benefit Spaulding Rehabilitation

Lanoue Gallery is pleased to present Write Your Own Story, a collection of text-based works by Miami based artist David McCauley. 

McCauley’s text works are often pared down to a short phrase or just a single word in an effort to find a universal truth or idea that resonates with us all regardless of our background, gender, race, finances, or health.   The materials and words are thoughtfully chosen to spark engagement with the viewer.  But the artist has left the compositions and text equally and deliberately spare to allow room for the viewer to write their own story with each piece. 

McCauley’s desire to write his own story has played a significant role in helping him move forward after a traumatic injury, which is part of his desire to help others do the same.  Over a decade ago, McCauley dove into a friend’s swimming pool head first and suffered a C6 spinal cord injury that left him permanently paralyzed from the chest down.   During the grueling months of rehabilitation that followed, McCauley was introduced to the gift of art therapy which can provide a range of immeasurable lifelong benefits.
