Kendra Marable's mixed media addresses the history of objects. In her artist's statement, she explains: "All objects have a history. At one point there was an owner, an occasion, a meaning. They were someones. But then, a treasured birthstone necklace from a favorite uncle ends up at the bottom of a dusty box in the back of a barn. Two matching salt and pepper shakers having lived side by side for years, are separated forever; neither is shaken again. The rare family photograph survives the lives of all who impatiently sat still so long ago, only to end up at a junk store in a crowded drawer with dozens of unrelated strangers. All of these people once had names, identities, and personalities, their individuality now suspended as they all equally and simultaneously fade together. Is anyone, anywhere, missing them?"
