Pamela Flynn, Professor of Art, is exhibiting mixed media art works in an exhibition titled Forget-Me-Not. The mixed media work in this exhibit is all new work that has not been exhibited before.
The focus of this work is loss. One knows that life is tenuous. Death is always the end product of life. To live is to die. All ponderings on death are done by the living. All fear of death is felt by the living. Death is what makes life precious.
This series of images allows the viewer to slip into the memories of someone who has died and who has left an empty place in the viewer’s life. Memories are what the living have of the dead. Memories are what enrich the lives of the living. These images are an exploration into empty spaces, empty spaces to be filled with memories. The images range in mood which reflects the nature of memories.
This series evolved from the gun violence series Considering Harm. Considering the death of an individual leaves one to ponder the loss, the empty space that this individual has left for others-the living. The loss, the empty space, is what marks the death of the individual.
The exhibit will run from April 30 – May 24, 2014 and the reception is May 8, 6:00-8:00 PM.
Phoenix Gallery is located at 210 11th Ave Suite 902, New York, NY.
