About

Annette's Hearts

The Works

Annette always insisted that this body of work should have no author. In contrast, the pieces and their stories were made through, and for, a collective sharing of the "heart." They were not meant for a gallery or for sale, but as an experience - or as she would later call it, an "encounter." The project, whose scope continually broadened as time progressed, was meant to unravel, to stir up, provoke, and possibly heal. The work was not limited to her own story, but instead took on the broader burden of the human experience. Even the ones some may not want to talk about. Ultimately, all of these pieces made up something larger. The context of this project's creation is a singular and aching story, but the project itself is much more than that. It is the embodiment of a plural pain, but also a much bigger love than we have ever known.

“If we could look into each other’s hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.”
― Marvin J. Ashton

The Website

In an effort to capture and make available Annette's Heart Project, this website was put in place. It doesn't come close to representing what she had in mind, as the website was originally intended to be entirely experiential, but is the first step in making this body of work available to those who seek it out.
