How do we pass through life? What marks do we leave? How do the threads of time and our actions connect us? Through depicting moments in one life I wanted to explore these questions. My grandfather, James Waters, lives in public and personal worlds and his actions and experiences connect both. His life, like ours, has layers. The use of cotton and assorted recycled materials enhances this textural, tactile medium, establishing the metaphor for these questions. What threads do we create and what do we leave behind?

Influencing artists: John Brack, Sybille Hotz, Craig Ruddy, Jessica Rankin
