Memories of the Forest Installation & Book
The search for the meaning of “home” has been an ongoing narrative in my work for the past few years– not just the physical sense of home but also a spiritual and metaphorical search for home. The Installation of Memories of the Forest ties into this exploration as well the accompanying Artist Book.
The juxapositioning of memories of a first generation child of Holocaust survivors growing up on the prairies has provided me with a unique view on the world and is one that I also explore in my painting series Home Series: “Neither Here Nor There”. In this series I reflect upon the ideas of memory, home, exile, re-emergence/rebirth, and self identity.
