Evaporate – textile art that explores loss. Singularly alone, the feeling of loss – lonely, empty, bleak and tearful. Evaporation also reminds us of the soul leaving the body and rising. Atoms that make us cannot be created, changed or destroyed. Like salt crystals our loved ones continue to exist but in a different form.
Installation art about death, Sum explores identity and individuality within a mass grave. Mass graves contain the remains of many individuals each with their own memories and individuality. Research in forensic anthropology and it’s use to determine individuals has been the inspiration for this work. Genocide atrocities are perpetuated through history in an endless cycle, and is represented here by a fibre optic circle that contains the empty vessels.
The burden of some memory is impossible to shift, it is dragged through entire lives, even through generations. Precious memory is often part of these difficult memories integrated and impossible to separate.
