Alexandra Derderian is an artist currently living and working in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Regardless of he emotions attached to a memory, there is residual loss in each moment. One could envelop themselves in joy, or resist the intense discomfort we know as fear or loss----it is inevitable that the present will just become the past. My current studio processes begins with an accumulation of personal writings, photographs, objects and other memory triggering objects. I use these as documentation and materials to create drawings, paintings and multimedia works to cope with the loss one experiences by never being able to re-experience memories and previous identities.
