If Remembered, 2003 | Mary Abma | Mary Abma

If Remembered is a series about the women in my family tree.  Many of their stories are untold and unremembered.  The paintings in this series are impressions of their experiences as I imagine they might have been.  I do not claim to be accurate in my depictions of these women.  Nor do I wish to gloss over or stand in judgment of my ancestors' beliefs or actions.  This show is a series of portraits, but not in the traditional sense of the word.  What I have tried to depict is one element of each woman's life that I feel has a universal quality.  If Remembered was exhibited in Gallery Lambton, Sarnia, Ontario,  in February, 2003.
