Ocean Memento

30 Dec

Ocean Memento is the same size as my previous art doll Traveller but more ambiguous.  Because she is created intuitively there is a lot of mystery about what she represents. She is poetic in style; more symbolic and abstracted than Traveller. For me she is personifying memory; endless hours as a child spent on a beach in Nova Scotia.  That said because she is subjective in nature  every one who looks at her will have a different take on what she represents.

Symbolic elements to find within her include: waves on the seashore, a sand labyrinth for time, pearls for value, sand dollar for faith, glass for ocean depths, and bells to represent children’s laughter.
