The installation “Renascent” expresses feelings and memories about the circular loop of coping with adversity. Problems are a part of our existence. Dealing with them, keeping them from piling too deep, takes continual attention. I see the processing of afflictions as a continuous cycle that is rarely performed alone. Renascent means “coming again into being,” and refers to the part of the cycle where we become renewed in psyche, restored in health, and regenerated in spirit.
