Between the Lines
A drawing dialogue with Mary Peterson. Meant to explore a larger idea of language, these drawings were a metaphor for the experience of two artists who were the emotional caretakers of the adults that raised them. As caregiving roles turned around and the adult children were now the ones responsible, words became an increasingly obscure possibility. We wondered what other ways are there to share, comfort and understand beyond written, spoken or signed language. Using drawing as the vocabulary, the dialogue gives voice to the experience each artist had during the final months, days and hours of caring for their dying parent/brother.
