When my mother moved into an apartment from the house where she’d spent over 50 years, she gave me her painting supplies. Among a few sheets of unused paper were many paintings that she had started and discarded, and shortly after she died I decided to use the paper in a private collaboration with her. I began by tearing the large sheets into smaller parts and dissolving the image until it was barely there, a ghostly guide. Only gradually did it become apparent that connecting my mother’s death, my own aging, and that view were coalescing in the new works.
