A note from the artist:
"A humble roadside memorial from someone who passed away in my hometown of Windham, NH. She was young and from what I understand, it was a truly a freak accident. Many of us from Windham were touched by her story in some way. She could have just as easily been you or me, or someone we love. So I hung out on the side of a main road for a while, learned as much as a could about this young woman, cleaned up the garbage surrounding her memorial, while I tried my best to pay my respects to this sacred space.
I’ve always felt a pang in my heart when I pass these roadside memorials, thinking of the friends and family carrying that pain and the meaning those little white crosses hold. A symbol not only for those who lost their lives, but also a reminder for how fragile life is for all of us.
On a more technical note, I don’t often work with collage but I wanted to include images of the flowers from the actual site to this piece, my own way of placing them there. To emphasize this, I painted drop shadows beneath them."
