Caren Helene Rudman

My work explores the complexities of emotions surrounding death, loss and disease. I use my mother’s discarded snapshots as both the background and cut up in the foreground, layered with photo transfers, fiber paper, pastels, and paint, to reveal that there is a constant struggle between connection and separation. I am inspired by art that moves the viewer, helping to see that out of darkness comes light, and that when we face our mortality, we find meaning.
