ARTIST STATEMENT
Playing board games together creates opportunities to laugh, to learn, to compete, to share, to win, to lose and to connect with family and friends in a way that not many other activities can offer. As technology continues to evolve and we are offered more and more screens to put in front of us, the appeal of playing board games may fade in direct proportion. I was cleaning out my closet a few years ago and came face to face with a stack of board games that hadn’t seen the light of day in several years. As I looked at the boxes I was flooded with memories and a wave of nostalgia and I wondered if others might feel the same. I had an idea to bring the boxes and the memories out of storage and back into our lives. I decided to create this show out of board games in an effort to give new life to things that hold deep and meaningful memories for us so that we can interact with them in a new way. My hope is that those who see the works are reminded of times spent with people they love and experiences that connected them together.
