STATEMENT \ BEAUTY CARRIES ME
During the unprecedented global pandemic, solitude and the uncertainty of time influenced my perception and perspective on life and memory. In my personal efforts to navigate the emotional upheaval of the state of the world and my own heavy heart, artistically, I gravitated towards subject matter that is relatable, familiar and ever- changing. Consequently, this artistic journey evoked self-awareness and reflection on my very own mortality. As I strive to recall and protect personal sentimental moments, I am challenged with the disconnect and fragmentation that the passing of time creates. Although we all know the eventual fate of our own life, perhaps it is the unpredictability and lack of control of a pandemic that reminds us of our temporary existence. However temporary, whether in the stillness or chaos of time, a photograph can see in the human soul and reveal the vitality that is alive in a single moment. Another reminder – in this case that each of us is connected.
