what we hold close / what we let go
Solo exhibition at the Catskill Art Society
The theme of what we hold close/ what we let go is memory. Memory is never an exact replay of what actually happened but instead consists of odd scraps of translucent occurrences laid out side by side or on top of one another. I invoke this experience with my assemblages, collages, wall sculptures and found materials by exploring how objects and images ascribe meaning to the places I have lived and the realities I have lived through. Upcycled objects are altered and repurposed but still retain enough of their original elements to suggest their prior history. By placing transformed objects into a dialog with my artwork I am creating a selective narrative of my life.
