body prints on muslin dresses
(1 of 6)

Memory and the valuing of past events, relationships, accomplishments and failures are intrinsic to my understanding and perception of my self and my own existence. They serve as small proofs of my progress in life and in time.

With each event in our lives, each relationship, we grow and change. The proof of this lies in who we are now, as a result, while all evidence of who we were, and what that event or relationship might have been, disappears.

"Memories of Your Devotion" is an investigation of a past relationship in attempt to reveal, through paint on the blank canvas of three dresses, the traces of others that we record on our bodies.
