This project served as an exploration into the enigma that is memory and emotion. While my initial goal was to characterize what memory and emotion can be visualized as in the physical plane, it became a very personal and transformative experience that I grew through both skill wise and on a deeper level, coming to terms with my past and remembering more about myself. While working on this project I took a few different directions in the beginning, and ultimately it allowed me to venture outside of my comfort zone and refine a style that I find unique to myself. I created a series of scrolls and on canvas creations that mix different types of media, including but not limited to, charcoal, oil and acrylic paints, oil pastel, china markers, and even digital media. This project came out with positive results, I find it to be both evocative to others’ senses and capable of bearing a large amount of personal emotional weight and formative experience. This project has been one of the first experiences I have had creating something truly cathartic.
