 Artist Statement:

“Forgiveness is warm. Like a tear on a cheek. Think of that and of me when you stand in the rain. I loved you completely. And you loved me the same. That's all. The rest is confetti.”

⁃ The Haunting Of Hill House (TV)

Even though Shirley Jsckson never wrote those words in the book, I think she would have approved. The first time I saw this show, these words hit me like an arrow to the heart. I cried a lot while watching it. I’m a big fan of the book and since they are SO different I was able to appreciate them as two separate things.

This show deals heavily with grief. Something I have struggled all my life with. That line, “The rest is confetti”, affected me in a way I didn’t anticipate. I thought about this for so long after.

We, together at any moment, are eternal. Nothing else matters. Everything falls to the floor like paper after a party, settling at our feet. When the gathering is over, the ghost is still there. We were here and we mattered. Memory is a liminal hallway in the mind that we can walk down any time we choose.

I chose the flowers for this piece carefully. Snapdragons, because they resemble confetti, and for strength. They are able to grow in uninhabitable places, just like our relationships. We can find company in even the darkest corners of life.

Rosemary for remembrance.

Pink roses for gratitude and love. Something that is important to me as I’ve learned to deal with my grief. I’ve found dwelling in gratitude for the moments I’ve had with people I loved is a better place than feeling like I was short-changed. I hope someone out there finds healing in this piece. I did.
