Artist: Carole Loeffler, Title: Golden Boy Everlasting
Medium: Vintage photograph, glitter, felt, ink and paint, Dimensions: 12"x 12"x 1.5"
I scour the shelves, bins and racks at thrift stores for vintage photos, suitcases, quilts, greeting cards, pillowcases, clothing and ephemera from everyday life. Of particular excitement and interest to me is discovering evidence from the previous owner…handwriting on the back of a photograph or greeting card, stitches in a quilt or on a handmade garment. I feel a strong connection to an anonymous person from an unknown time and place. The power of mark making and stitches bind us together in humanity and suggest imagined narratives and a renewed purpose. I am the caretaker of these thrifted and found objects and the messenger from which their stories flow.
