Show statement from artist:
The pieces that I have made for this show have my late sister Roswitha’s life and passing as its theme.
I am the youngest of five sisters, and Roswitha was the fourth child, and six years my senior – my teacher, advisor and mentor throughout much of my life. She passed away from cancer treatment complications last year, after a long and brave battle. We are still processing the fact that her full life was cut short in this way, and making our way through grieving her.
To aid this process, I made a Spotify playlist in her remembrance, and to feel connected to her, and process my sadness. All the sculptures I have made for the show have been inspired by a musical piece on this playlist, and it will play during the show opening. I hope visitors will connect with the sculptures, and the music that inspired them.
It means so much to me that I will be able to celebrate my sister’s life and story with my community by showing this body of work.
