The children’s garments I paint invoke the memories embedded in textile; the distance between a garment’s active life and its afterlife and the way some children’s clothing carries multigenerational histories, recalled by touch, color, or smell, not needing to name what, in a given moment, pulls at the heart. The painting, Letters Home To Mother, is composed of letters from two brothers who – as soldiers - wrote to their mother during World War II.
All the writing is hand done - nothing is collaged.
