transform

Noyes Arts Garage, Atlantic City, NJ

This is an expanded exhibition of Transform at Kean University in 2015. This exhibition has been designed for the gallery space at the Noyes Arts Garage in Atlantic City.

There are times in our lives when the floor drops unexpectedly from under our feet and propels us on a dark journey. This human condition of loss often feels surreal and affects each of us in profound and unexpected ways.

This is a painful process, as we descend into denial, anger, negotiation and despair. We find ourselves adrift, our compasses malfunction, and we are left disoriented and despondent. Finally, there is acquiescence, the inflection point where healing commences.

This exhibit is an emotional recollection of my own transformation. I have chosen to use fiber as my medium, as it brings a nonthreatening quality to this provocative and sometimes uncomfortable subject. Emerging from the darkness has helped me to see possibilities that can only be discovered through the path of deconstruction and reconstruction.
