The catalyst for this body of work is no less dramatic than the work itself. “In 1982 Reitz nearly lost the use of his left arm and leg in a serious truck accident. Laid up for months and in constant pain,” he sank into a deep depression (Clowes). It is during this period of despair that Reitz’ father passed away and his niece, Sara Gula, was diagnosed with cancer. A regular exchange of letters and drawings between Reitz and his niece saw them through the worst of their convalescence. This exhibition will feature, together for the first time, over 40 works from this series.
