where we came from
and how we got to any given place in time.
Everything is connected…”
"Les Retrouvailles" represents one's search for meaning as we alternatively try to remember...or to forget. In this work, the figure appears turned in or wrapped around herself. This conceptualization of action, highlighted by the curvilinear linework, presents a pictorial image of our search for meaning and understanding. A large percentage of our identity is founded on our memories - those snapshots and film clips contained only in our mind's eye. Holding onto memories, this woman is working her mind to retrieve more memories - some key to her journey. The hope is that its resurgence will bring a positive effect in her present day existence.
