|Each piece in the show consists of an image and text, hanging side by side which are intended to be viewed together as one.
It seems to me that life is an entanglement of stories, all intertwined and joined to make a grand creation. We make a story each day and during the process incorporate objects into the fabric of the narrative. Each object has a story, and as we move on we leave these objects as historical footprints in the snow, vague leftovers on the path of our progress through life.
Many objects have made their way to me from generations before me; furniture, silver, teapots, plates, glass – I think of them collectively as treasure, because of the wealth of stories associated with them that link me with the people before me. I make a drawing of an object and write its story so that the object takes on meaning and character. Shown on the wall, image and text side by side, they make a single statement, a documentation of one footprint already placed on the path of the past.
