‑‒— the spaces between

it's that time of year again
when there's lots of arts events
going on locally:

after hearing her speak at 
I was curious about new works
by Tricia North:
as someone who loves
the snippets of family legend
tales like chinese whispers
ever changing and embellished:
this collection of pieces are about 
the bits that are not said:
"the mistakes, accuracy and gaps
in information that we leave
for future generations"
her complex structures
layers text texture
sewn thrown
glazed sanded
painted scratched
"my concerns are not so much about what is said
but what isn't and how we read and misread that"

while objects have no meaning
without the person telling the story:
Tricia is reciting and reforming them
in her own distinctive way:
