The Past

Laura Davidson

Laura Davidson embroidered these hoops at the end of 2016 as a reflection of her own feelings about the past and concern for the future. Materials were chosen to make the viewer question their own interpretations of the past and future. The reflective surface of the "Past" serves as a murky mirror, reflecting light and a distorted image of the viewer. Their memories are there, but clouded by time and nostalgia. The dull surface of the "future" hoop looks empty at first glance, representing the mystery and confusion of times ahead.
