Art Statement: Repeating patterns, a misty haze, and thread and sticky tape to hold the pieces together. ‘Thought Trails’ shows the workings of our brain when we are doing nothing. That’s where creativity starts: thoughts wander off, randomly switch between past and present, or shift from blurry to crystal clear. The mind forges fascinating connections, blocks certain memories and fills in the blanks with imagination. It enables us to manipulate the world around us to our liking. In ‘Thought Trails’ the photograph of a lace curtain from a stifling past gets a defiant streak of red oil paint. Imperfect cross stitches and careless dots of beeswax add a rebellious touch to nostalgic scenes. Old windows shed a new light on familiar territory. These daring collages present a brand new world: its multiple layers draw the viewers in and invite them to let their own imagination run loose.
