The diptych portrays a figure lost in thought as they gaze back into a mirror that reflects on their past self with a sense of rememory.
The artwork in Rememory captures nostalgia as a powerful magnet that draws the figure toward their past experiences. The figure is suspended in a liminal space between past and present, captured in a moment of reflection and introspection. Through the use of the mirror as a portal to the past, the artwork explores the complexities of memory and how it can shape one’s present and future. Overall, this printmaking artwork invites the viewer to reflect on the magnetic pull of nostalgia and how it can impact our journey of growth and self-discovery.
