‘When one door closes, another opens!’ Viewers are invited to explore this narrative art installation and contemplate those instances when one has had to step aside from their closed door and open or create a new one.
In my work I am interested in creating a connection and shared experience between my pieces and the viewer through personal narrative. My installation, “Opening doors,” a blend of image and text, is an exploration of the old adage “when one door closes, another opens.”
I have asked local community members and artists to participate with me in sharing our stories which relate to this proverb. This art installation is inspired by and represents those moving stories. That is, the instance when one has had to step aside from their closed door and find or create an open one.
