Keeper of Secrets
This work is a reminder of absence and loss and the triumph of light over shadows and darkness.
Light illuminates the areas that can be accessed: the doors and the drawers of the real life
furniture it stands for. Light alludes to the possibility of discovering secrets long hidden behind those doors and drawers. Not just secrets but also biography and history.
Shadows stand for the difficulty in accessing this knowledge. Although we can reach into drawers and take the material objects that belonged to the absent ones but there are limits to the accessibility.
Light and shadows stand for the limits that I have faced and will continue to face in filling in the blanks of my narrative.
