Prattsville Clews – A Case Study by Clover Archer
Each of these drawings is a collaborative effort made with a Prattsville citizen. The collaborators, prompted by names and dates on their family trees, kindly shared Clews – stories, histories, memories – which Clover noted on the family tree charts. The family trees start off neat and orderly, but the hurried handwritten recordings of the conversations can meander and wander in and out of legibility, much like our memories.
All drawings: 18 x 24 inches, graphite on paper, 2019-2020
