Image Statement: This work reflects on the intense emotions experienced when in contact with bed linens. These two pillowcases have been torn and mended. They bear witness to passions spent before sleep and dreams forgotten on waking. Although we endlessly strive to clean and launder them, they remain keepers of our memories, dreams and tears.
