Visual Memoirs- Notes of Nostalgia
This series of six mixed media images was created in July 2011 at the Vermont Studio Center at an Artist Residency, inspired by memoir and the power of music and how hearing a melody can bring back a flood of memories, recreating a time, a place and an event as if it were happening again. I use monotype, silkscreen, images, colors, and pattern to depict snippets of memories creating layers of visual memoirs.
From the top they are: Melody and Memory, Melodic Memory and Surviving Memory. They will be shown at the POST Open House on Sunday October 2 at Sherman Mills, 3502 Scotts Lane, bldg 2. Come see them in person. The layering and colors really show much better.
