Meaningless Words and Fading Memories (diptych) by MarlanaAdeleVassar Meaningless Words and Fading Memories (diptych) by MarlanaAdeleVassar
This piece was a great lesson for me in how to create a powerful diptych. They could exist separately but the words on the left side are an excerpt in a letter from my ex-boyfriend. On the right I decided to write a new letter, but it was a response as to what I would say to him now. As I painted each layer the words became more blurred and harder to distinguish, and strangely enough I can’t recall what the words actually say. So now they really are meaningless words and fading memories…I suppose that’s what all memories do eventually. After telling them the story, my collector couldn’t bear to keep them apart and decided to “adopt” them both. ♥ I’m really glad they were able to stay together…
