Image Statement: In “Now & Then”, I have considered where I have been and where I am in my life. The dynamic lines in this piece spell out Now And Then, one word per panel. Each panel shows layered lines that create the letters which spell out each word. The lines were created from fabric on which I wrote my thoughts and feelings about the concepts of Now & Then. In the first panel, the writing on the lines are a reflection of my life ‘Now’. The second panel lines are a musing about the connective power of the word ‘And’, and how my life is connected from the present to the past. The final panel’s lines are memories of significant moments in my past. The writing on the lines imbue hidden meaning to the overall piece. The viewer can catch glimpses of words, but the content remains obscured.
