Artist: Helene Farrar  
  Statement: Though it is not conscientious, we carry with us what we have lost, cherished, collected, and remember. In “What We Carry” there is an attempt to begin discussions about this mystery behind our human nature and to project hope. These paintings and assemblages are meant to reflect how one might be carrying an entire room of a life or a singular chapter, a traumatic experience of weight, that defines our choices in our ways of being. These works allow one to see the unseen as if experiencing personal intention, self-reflection and an intrinsic motivation to “carry” on.
