Melodie Allegre

Artist Statement

What interests me most the past year is the concept of self-identity through the passage of memories. Memories constantly flux either through the act of retelling, for the sake of story telling or all other circumstances that can alter the original memory. What is ironic is that these memories, whether pure or not, result in who we are as an individual. My body of work takes images either through photographs or models and skews it in a way that is similar to a memory that morphs as time passes.

 

 

“I think it is all a matter of love: the more you love a memory, the stronger and stranger it is.”

–Vladimir Nabokov
