Artist Statement - Wings of Triumph

This piece of artwork was inspired by a multitude of things ranging from the new perspective of now being a disabled athlete, the extraordinary technology that allows my continued participation, and the team of athletes who helped me accomplish different sports activities. This painting is meant to to reflect that sensation of being in a racing wheelchair and feeling the thrill of the wind whooshing past you. Finally, it is a celebration of the sense of community spirit that enabled me to fly across the finish line once again!

Artist Biography - ​Mackenzie Wann

Back in 2014, I endured a nearly fatal fall that landed me in a wheelchair. I had sustained a spinal cord injury and was diagnosed as quadriplegic. At 26 years old, I found myself suddenly thrust into the world of disability. However, to my amazement, one year later I had my first experience in an adaptive sports wheelchair. At the time, I also met my aptly named “angels“ — the team of able-bodied athletes dedicated to helping me once again enjoy the accomplishment of crossing the finish line!
