Grief Work

Ink-jet Prints

This body of work is the result of a personal experience that began in March 2006. As he typically did at that time, my husband, Kevin Kelly, planted lettuce seeds in our garden. The following month, Kevin died suddenly and without any warning. At the end of May, on what would have been our 25th wedding anniversary, I picked the mature lettuce leaves and pressed them in a pad of drawing paper. The wet leaves created the perfect environment for growing mold. It was, in effect, an experiment that began with seeds planted by my husband, a science teacher, and ended with the images that you see here. These prints are scans of the original objects that have been manipulated slightly so as to play with the multi-dimensional effect of the leaves. They are then printed on art paper similar to the originals. “Grief Work” is a true collaboration – and connection – between Sue and Kevin, art and science, life and death.
