About the Exhibit
This work explores vision in both a literal and metaphorical sense. The two artists, daughter Christina and mother Emily Tarsell ’86, were inspired by the experience of light, color, and texture of the physical world, while also exploring physical materials to externalize concepts and feelings, the stuff of inner visions.
Chris was a young artist with a philosophical bent who died suddenly at 21. While we will never witness the realization of her ambitions, we can experience something of her vision through the art she left behind. After her daughter’s death, Emily felt a pressing need to repeatedly explore images of Chris through creative acts. She now feels connected with Chris through all that they deeply loved, including light, color and texture.
