Reconstructed Memories


Growing up, the conclusion of summer meant the arrival of the Monarch butterflies.  In my mind they were the sign of something new.  I began to see them as the symbol of letting go of the past and embracing the future. 

In my current work I find myself creating small cast figures that have become stylized self-portraits.  These figures are representational glimpses of the things that have lingered in my mind.  I capture the emotions within moment of time. I find myself confronting parts of my past that I wish to forget and holding on to things I should have let go of long ago.  With these figures the little monarch that is often the accomplice to the girl becomes my personal little symbol of freedom and change; of the ability to let go of the things that are not meant to remain in our lives.  They are symbolic to the things will go on and the fresh starts.
