Bringing together the feelings of the past and the events of the present, “Felicity” visualizes the emotive response to memories. Each piece is developed from authentic and personal sources, yet expressed in a way that is accessible to others.
“Felicity” is a series that visually captures the pure emotional response to an event. Each piece takes something intensely personal and reimagines to better reflect how each memory feels in the present, in a way that is accessible to all. The size and structure of each work are designed to reflect aesthetics originating from authentic sources, inspired by things such as family furniture and home videos. “Felicity” speaks of the joy of connection in the present and the echo of memories, both pain, and bliss.
