Hillaree Hamblin | Short Term Memory

Opening Reception: June 16, 2017 | 6 – 8 PM

Using a conglomeration of experimental processes, Hamblin’s work uses intense remembered emotions as the catalyst to create works that represent the essence of a memory or event. The resulting pieces are structures containing caught fragments of the past infused with personal reflections. Elements from these tactile formations of intangible emotions are broken down and reformed, in much the same way sediment and strata are layered. In giving such a fragile and constantly changing entity such as memory a physical form and life, Hamblin hopes to simultaneously document and enshrine her personal history.

On view: May 20 – July 10, 2017
