"These collages come out of a nostalgic attachment to my grandparents’ photo albums from the 1960’s and 1970’s. The ‘Summer Picnic’ collages use photos of a summer barbeque at a neighbors’ house in Seattle when my father was 11 years old. The “Tel Aviv Bus Station” collages use photos of my grandparent’s trip to visit my father when he studied in Israel in the late 1970’s. By cutting, layering and combining the images I hope to speak about the malleable, ephemeral nature of memory, nostalgia and the universal desire for shared spaces and shared experiences.Sharon Wherland is a collage artist, painter and violinist living in Redmond, Washington.”
