Flood Narrative

The end of November found me opening my studio to the public for the annual event, 'The Eastside Culture Crawl'. I had 500 guests over the weekend! Below are some photos of the show I have been working on for the past year. Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present.... Rivers & Streams

Rivers & Streams explores the ambiguous threshold between perception and reality. The pieces are rooted in the artist’s origins, her hometown, family and experiences. The narrative fluidly departs from fact into myth when familiar forms are used in unfamiliar arrangements; mirroring the fragmented yet resilient nature of memory.

The materials worked into the pieces are the remnants of a collective past; objects that have previous histories such as archived photographs, handkerchiefs and scraps of fabric. By compiling and redefining layers of physical history, the works provoke sensory and nostalgic reactions that are shrouded with mystery.
