""I am very fond of sunsets. Come, let us go look at a sunset now." "But we must wait," "Wait? For what?" "For the sunset. We must wait until it is time." From The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry."
Another Garde is proud to showcase the first two prints of her series of printmaking on childhood and self-rediscovery. As a mom of two, she has enjoyed observing her children grow up but feared for a while that she was losing herself. One day, after flicking through her personal family photography album she realized that her existence did not disappear. Au contraire, their childhood is her childhood, a series of memories and sensations long forgotten. In her series, children are colorfully dressed but the faces have no color. Children become mirrors.
