“I met my husband, Mark, at 16 years old while attending high school in New York. We were married at 25 and then moved to California, where we raised two daughters and built a life together. In 2018, after a short illness, Mark died of leukemia at age 69.
This piece represents how a shared life creates layers of patterns. Loss can disrupt the sense of comfort derived from familiar patterns, resulting in both the pain associated with absence as well as the space to create new beginnings.
‘MARKing Time’ depicts our life together, through the use of colored building blocks. As I navigate this next phase of my life, the patterns transform to allow for new growth and discovery.”
