Statement

The work in Nurse comes from the world of allegory and theatre. The conditions of my inner world requires the making of things to explain and commemorate. The artworks reflect a confidence in magic and wonder. Their power exists with the ability to transform an interior state, to an external experience for the viewer. The most obvious and specific inferences allow for the most expansive response in the viewer. The act of creating them is the definition of nurse; to cure or alleviate by treating it carefully and protectively, and to hold closely and carefully or caressingly. -Cynthia Lahti
