Dear caregivers… this art piece is for you. It is to remind you that you are beautiful and you are loved.
As an artist, Chantal Larocque is sensitive to the emotions of others. She sympathizes with the distress of both the person who manifests symptoms of brain diseases, and those who experience them – the caregiver and the family members.
The black and white photos represent all of our memories, which can be shadowed by life’s circumstances. We need to remember that in time even the most barren soil can be renewed and bloom again. Flowers are universally loved. Their simple presence can beautify any room, and cheer any person – their blossoms cover over memories and give us hope. The sweet little Forget-Me-Not blooms are to remember those we love, even if they’re still with us right now. We need to create vivid memories that will last!
