Ann Wessmann

Ann Wessmann's recent objects and installations explore life cycles, memory, and loss, through the use of a variety of materials found, collected, sorted and arranged over time. Materials include plants, stones and shells, as well as more personal items including locks of hair from family members and texts from family journals and letters.
