Garden of Grief and Sorrow,
Maggie Clifford-Bandstra, 48x64 inch
Garden of Grief and Sorrow, I have been thinking a lot about trauma, grief, and healing. Because honestly, I am not sure how our country will heal. I think back to my visit to the poppy field in Fennville Mi. The people who planted this field did it to memorialize their son who passed away due to suicide from PTSD. This piece is caught between reality and abstraction.
