PAST PRESENT FUTURE
This series was born from a challenge set by submitting to a call for entry at the Specto Art Space Gallery in Harrisonburg, VA. The juror statement explained that 'When artists contemplate time, an exhibition is born which surveys our current world, place in the past, and plans for the future in a poignant, if not in a somewhat melancholic way. A divide is created between the warm and imperfect past, and the biting, optimistic future.'.
Using photographic remnants of where I was living, I used this opportunity to recreate the struggles of my past in order to acknowledge them, find the determination to leave them all behind and move forward along an exciting new path.
