Stroke of Emotions
This is a series of composited self portraits, created after my husband had a major stroke in 2017.
feedback from an artist talk
You gave us a brave presentation of your recent life journey though the self-portraits that you displayed. The images were more expressive of feelings than words could ever be. I could see myself & my journey in the single self-images that you showed before you added to them. Every emotion that I felt was right there on the screen.
Then when you added the additional layers to your single image I could travel through the feelings being expressed. Life changes are challenging to the very depth of our resilience. Your sharing of these sequences allowed me to know that other people have the same emotional travel that I have had.
