The installations in this show are my way of telling very personal stories based on photographs and memories. To me, memories are like the expanding universe – the older you become, the farther away memories of a person, place, event, or thing seem. Sometimes, along the way, over space and time, images such as photographs, drawings, or paintings, bookmark memories for us. These icons along our personal timeline help us to remember details and prompt us to make comparisons about how things have changed, or haven’t.
My pieces are pinned together to enhance the natural “intelligence” of paper, perhaps inviting environmental influences to cause the paper to bend or curl and become part of the work. I use a square format and superimpose this grid over the installations, like a “window” in time through which to view them. My works are handmade and are fragile and temporary, just like as memories and materials may be.
