Image Statement: The loss of memory is not a sudden event. Memory comes and goes; it fades in and out. There are bright spots where recollections are sharp and focused, and darker areas where people and events are no longer accessible. Confusion and often anger reign. Both my mother and mother-in-law were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and their present and past battles with this disease have informed this series.
