Artist Statement: Letters and cards don’t matter. Even if they are from people closest to you. Your history is in your memories not paper. The people closest to your heart don’t live on through ink, they live in in your heart, in heaven, they are standing right next to you, they are in your future. When people don’t know who you are, letters and cards don’t resonate, you are always changing, and nobody but yourself can keep up with who you are at this very moment. These are all the cards and letters I’ve ever recieved in my life. Cards and letters where people didn’t know who I was. A house of cards can make a house but can’t shelter you from life. Sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me, though paper cuts hurt and words are remembered. Only you choose which ones matter. It was a little difficult to cut up about 18 years of my life into playing card shapes but then I realized there is always a time we have to let go and live now, and not live in the past.
