ARTIST STATEMENT

When I thought of “Bitter | Sweet”, I thought of an experience or feeling that encapsulated both — the memory of a late loved one. When we lose someone, our memory of them is plagued with pain and discord in their absence. But with time, we heal, and our memory of them becomes tinged with something more reminiscent of nostalgia as we come to terms with our loss. Eventually, accepting their absence, and celebrating their presence in our memories. We experience both the Bitter, and also the Sweet.
