Moments in Time – Exhibition Photographs

Maude Kerns Art Center offered me the opportunity to make my art installation for A Day in the Life a reality this year. With special help from my amazing and talented friend, Katrina Henry, the project came full circle and was installed and exhibited.

Artist Statement / A Day in the Life

—————————————————————————-

Please do 3 things for me:

  1.  Write down the details of one day of your life.
  1.  Send me a photograph of you.
  1.  Tell me your favorite color.

What is a relationship?  From the past to the future, one human to the next, to an artist with the materials she uses.  Mundane moments make up the majority of our day.  Dependence on strangers occurs more than most of us would like to admit.  Every moment is significant as it leads us to the next.  Every person matters and their actions create reactions that affect the world.  My art expresses my ideas about chaos and coincidence. From the extreme mundane activities of eating, sleeping, and brushing one’s teeth, to dramatic and historical events that centuries will continue to hear about, they all hold meaning. We are all connected by moments in time.
