Conversation in blue series, "Emmeline & Grace"

The story of this installation is about a dialogue between a mother and a child in blue, blue being the most memorable, imaginable and emotional tone in my family history. The differences of cultural and social behavior in our society have grown as a gap in generations. The blue installation is in two parts; one side presents a mother as the old generation, and the other side presents a child as the new generation. I would like to invite the public to join me and examine where we stand and how we interact with one another in mundane human activity.

    This piece is thought provoking. soft and also jagged. beautiful color. The difficult mother/daughter, first/second generation, old/new, old country/new home tension that we all face in this world is summed up for me in what I see as tension woven with fluidity, nature with environment, give and take. Nice. Would love to see in person!
