In Search of Forgiveness

Rebecca Zeiss's avatar Rebecca Zeiss

Remembered time can perform like stories housed in our memories that are recalled through objects. Some of the stories we care to share less are stories of loss or pain and some are of moments of epiphanies and amazing experiences. All are the stories I seek. I have no pre-vision of what the stories will be as I invite each individual to share their objects that are loved or have personal meaning. I invite those objects and their owners to tell their stories. The conversations that evolve between artist, subjects and objects equally engage the viewer in our shared conversations. The work that evolves from these conversations investigates each idea from multiple vantage points. The project started as a cathartic exercise, but as the narratives have unfolded verbally and visually and as the images have been conceptualized and actualized the work shifted from a personal to a wider scope. The main body of work emerging from this is called In Search of Forgiveness. This multi-media work is created on a canvas surface using pigment ink photographs printed on translucent Japanese Kozo papers and layered with encaustic oils.
