SUSAN BOTTRELL

This series of work was inspired by letters written between generations of extended family. I erase words, fragments and phrases attempting to look beneath the surface. Knitting words together, I unravel their story to read between the lines. The threads of past and present connect with the tenuous traces of memory to create new ties. Selected works below.
