Ascension of Grandma O, 2004
In 2004, my ninety-seven year old grandmother Olson passed away. Within that same month, my 15 year old Dog, Tiamo died as well. I found myself spending time drawing them obsessively before they left the world. In the same year, my nephew, David was born. I was enamored with his every move and drew pictures of him regularly. Perhaps it is for this reason that I found myself considering imagery that pondered the beginning of life and the end of it.
