Memento mori, a Latin phrase usually translated as "Remember that you are mortal," or "Remember you will die" describes the basis of the body of artwork that is my focus. Obituaries taken from newspapers, are the materials I use to explore poetic notions about death and loss. Obituaries reveal attitudes which influence my work as well as points of view which I sought to emphasize and later shift away from. My work leaves room for the viewer to sift through multiple levels of meaning while not imposing any singular interpretation.
