We can never really revisit the past because the mind invents too much as we attempt to stitch fact and memory together. Artwork sometimes radiates a cold and latent violence. At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning. By applying abstraction, she seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events.
Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life. Her collected, altered and own works are being confronted as aesthetically resilient, thematically interrelated material for memory and projection. By putting the viewer on the wrong track, she absorbs the tradition of remembrance art into daily practice. This personal follow-up and revival of a past tradition is important as an act of meditation.
Her practice provides a useful set of figurative tools for manoeuvring with a pseudo-minimalist approach in the world of sculpture: these meticulously planned works resound and resonate with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination. With a dark sense of humor and irrepressible optimism, the assurance that while life can be ominous, tragic, and even deceptive; it is also beautiful, magic, and alive with hope.
This sketchbook is a reflection of my recent journey from artist to art therapist. This experience was reflective in nature and allowed me to see how I have become more of myself than ever before.
