Bakehouse Artist Studio #1A & 43
Objects are very powerful and can evoke recollections of memories and experiences. Symbolic, historical, we identify them as a part of who we are or were and assign them significance and value. They can be personal or collective and pass from generation to generation or across cultures. My work playfully explores these relationships introducing some viewers to objects that have made the journey through time and reconnecting others to memories of their past.
I gather my medium from every corner of the world – drawn to their individual tales and aesthetics. Some bear the marks of time: wear from use, decades of weather and countless years forgotten in a barn or attic. Others show evidence of their former owners – a child’s name, a tradesman’s initials or skilled engraver’s dedication.
