In the Window
Creator/Creations is a three-dimensional drawing by Edwige Charlot. Sparked by the stories of the artist’s family about home, homeland and re-creating home in foreign lands, with this recent work Charlot explores the symbols and icons embedded in familial narratives. Using paper-cutting and drawing Charlot re-creates a shrine of the past and present. Charlot says in her artist statement “…I create to reclaim the field, the village, our home…”
This series is part of an overarching project entitled I.M.Migration funded in part by the Good Idea Grant from the Maine Arts Commission, an independent state agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts.
Edwige Charlot works in paper based media including drawing, installation and printmaking. She lives and works in Portland, Maine.
