History as Personal..

A coward is incapable of exhibiting love;  it is the prerogative of the brave. ~ Mahatma Ghandi

Three large mixed media drawings from an ongoing series give symbol to the theme of resistance.  Featuring the motif of the rose, I use materials that withstand many layers of ink, thus expanding and reclaiming the idea of love from a romantic stereotype and affirming its role in social idealism and political resistance.  Included in the exhibition were four works from Ruins  and a portrait from Fatherland

History as Personal Memory was an exhibition at the Slide Room Gallery in February 2018. Curated by Wendy Welch (director of Vancouver Island School of Art,) it showcased the work of  Ira Hoffecker, Ulrike Walker and myself. “The artists in this exhibition are all of German descent and are addressing the effect WWII had on their lives. While none of them were alive during the war, it has played an enormous role in their personal memories. These memories are based on information gathered from family relations, historical research and poetic imaginings.” (from the exhibition poster.)
