Installation Description

During the development of this series the word “trace” came into my consciousness. The New Oxford American Dictionary definition of this word provides a “trace” for ideas, thoughts and processes that were engaged during the creation of this work. The artist intent can also be discovered in the origin of the word suggesting a personal journey in terms of what the work evokes for each viewer.
