The "Relics of Marriage" series began as I viewed my own dress for the first time since my wedding years ago. Full of stains that marked memories of
that distinctive day, it led me to consider the wedding dress as a human
artifact – a relic charged by the hopes and dreams of the woman who wore it.
From this inspiration, I am using the wedding dress both literally
and figuratively to create mixed media installations in interior and exterior environments. These public experiences are invitations to dialogue on the changing concept of marriage today.
