Gilded Moments and Gilded Memory 9sculpture) are two pieces that operate in unison - the painting acting as a setting for the sculptural form. Together they emphasize our desire to highlight particular moments or experiences. In Gilded Moments, the gold hides the potential signifiers of the locations present within the painting. While in Gilded Memory, the figure’s face is masked as the gold seeps out, simultaneously beginning to cover part of her body. By applying a valuable medium, I am using the act of gilding to enforce the connectivity between loss and remembrance.
