ARTIST'S STATEMENT

Mara Jevera Fulmer

The creation of an animated film is much like our personal reflections and memories, a series of freeze-frames distorted by emotion, perception and age. After embracing the journeys life has taken me upon, I find it difficult to tear myself away from the places that I’ve called home. And so I return.

Fiji was my home for six years and became part my identity. It constantly beckons, pumping through my veins in answer to a different call from deep within. This first piece in my “movieola series” is meant to share images from the dreamscape that pervades my psyche. I’ve written the prose that melts in and out of the dreamscape, and it reads as follows:

Light flickers through trembling petals...
sunshine warms, shade cools...
a peace descends
...upon my swollen heart
...the drum beats out a distant call...
its dancing rhythm...
both excites and calms
...my anxious soul...
