Paper, mylar and thread on paper | 2021

The Forgetting Curve from Boston-based artist Kate Drewniak is a reflection on the nature of memory — shapes and hues emerging in layers and stages through a process that tests the artist’s memory as well as our own. Hand-built in paper, mylar, and thread, the pieces are crafted one side at a time. Drewniak adds layers of material to one side of the piece then covers the completed side and attempts to create its mirror image on the other half of the piece from memory. Other pieces are based on previous work by Drewniak, with only slivers of the original work recreated successfully. Using muted tones and faded papers, The Forgetting Curve is an exploration of transience. The result is a feeling familiar to us all — the strain of remembering what truly was, while inventing new details as the memory strays away from fact and into the fantasy world where it will reside.

“I didn't want to waste the entire inside of the books, so I started trying to find ways to incorporate the paper into my art. It pretty much went full circle and I started sewing the paper together again.”
