“I want to honor the memory of the victims of the devastation of Hiroshima. And, perhaps, put to sleep my own unrest and rage. I have incorporated images into a body of work that combines cyanotypes with textile and stitching to attempt to convey my enduring response to the tragedy. I wanted the results to be beautiful to my eyes, yes, but the key element, the “heartbreaking-ness” would be my mission and challenge.”
