Clinton Pettengill: Through the Frosted Window

Winter 18

From the artist:

Even though our personal memories , like snowflakes, may be unique  to us as individuals, the also exist in a collective storm for all of us to be part.

 

This exhibition is dedicated in loving memory to my Aunt Margy. Her drawing "Through a Frosted Window" had a huge impact on my imagination. It was a point of inspiration for this installation. In her original work, she "wiped away" the frost of a window to reveal her memories of her family. I aim to provide a similar experience. Each personal memory (shared by a different individual) exists on its own snowflake. When the memories are combined together, they create a flurry of different life experiences that exist in the same atmosphere.
