As I Remember It…, Part II

as i remember it…, explores my confessional art in this two part series that evolves with different approaches as it moved from a constructed narrative in the studio to the actual locations of the remembered event.

Selected memories relating to tragedies are expressed through the use of objects and staged moments that evoke deep sadness, distress, and grief. Concentrating on specific events, sites, and symbols I layer and divide the images to create visual and conceptual depth. The photographs reflect on revelations about childhood abuse, family discord, people and places utilizing objects such as rope, dolls and beans into autobiographical context. This disjunction between remembered experience and reality are incorporated to recapture personal history and make sense of my individual life.
