The Persistence of Memory

Jennifer Anderson's intricate lace, rose window and repeating patterns are cut into discarded reproductions of paintings. The labor-intensive process of hand cutting these images, not only grants the “original” reproduction with a new meaning visually and in form, but also a new sense of the artist hand.
A tension of meaning and materials as well as time exists in this work. The discarded is reincarnated. A new meaning and concept of beauty are superimposed on a previous one. The remainder functions individually and to remind us of the past as well, like a persistent memory and questions what is the original?
