AFTERIMAGE Project Statement 2016-2018

Afterimage is a series of abstract portraits of people who influenced Wren’s life. Instead of depicting faces and scenery, the expressionist style, the marks, and the colors evoke the sense of the person or the events described. The idea behind this body of work was to give form to meaningful, but nonverbal, experience and individuals, by the physical process of making the artwork as an act of reflection.
