Memories Near and Far depicts the transformation, emotionally and psychologically, that occurs when childhood meets adulthood. The loss of naiveté, accumulation of experiences and memories, and the release of memory necessary to move on to new experiences mark this transition. The events that occur during this time period are represented through seven installations: Incubation, I Am What I Fear, Consumed, An Offering: Gifts for Healing, Between Realities, The Self as a House: Self-Confinement, and Gleanings.

The work portrays memories of my personal journey through this time, the struggles I encountered, and lessons I have learned. Color, accumulation, and repetition of materials and objects help create the psychological atmosphere of the memories depicted in each installation.
