“Memory builds on to itself and creates multiple layers within the mind. I'm interested in how memory and history shape who we are as people. The graphite mark making symbolizes inner thoughts and emotions and is a form of communication with the past. In Dress Up in The Woods, I remember the familiar surroundings of my childhood, a time when life was carefree and full of optimism. I seek an answer to understanding the past and how it molded me into who I am today. We should always be aware of where we've been and how that shapes where we are going.”
Featuring the work of Becca Chacon.
