This series of paintings, installed at Mizel Museum and Loveland Museum/Gallery, concerns itself with the memory of love, of those who have left or died, of the multitudes who have suffered atrocities in the past and across the globe today, and in remembrance of the individuals who perished during, and those who survived, The Holocaust. This April 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of The Holocaust in 1945. This series of seventy paintings is a silent remembrance of the many layers of suffering endured during The Holocaust and since.

Like memory, these works of art are clouded with emotion, history, and unconscious intentions. They are not an homage to suffering nor an illustration of atrocities. They are the unfolding of the strata of my mindfulness as I pursue and come to grips with my own understanding and remembrance of the loss of and to humanity that is The Holocaust. In a highly subjective and perhaps selfish way, they represent my personal struggle with my remembrance of things lost, of lost love, of lost lives, and of lost innocence. –Andrew Svedlow
