Zenfolio | Alexanna Wonder | Artist Statement

confabulation (verb) : in psychology, a memory disturbance defined as the production of fabricated, distorted or misinterpreted memories about oneself or the world, without the conscious intention to deceive.

The process of art making is largely about presenting and creating pieces that reflect aspects of life, regardless of the object’s truth of existence.  Art, in it's way, confabulates reality.  My work uses process and imagery to imitate memory's attempts to simplify complex and multilayered experiences.  Memory is equal parts foggy, imperfect, fractured, and reassembled with understanding only gained through repetition of cycles and exploration of intersections.
