   Memory Work is an exhibition of paintings by 2019 Heimark Artist-in-Residence, Renold Laurent, a Haitian artist based in Boston. Through these paintings he examines how different materials, from oil and acrylic paint to coffee grounds, enter into artistic dialogue with one another and make new meanings across space and time. By transforming materials that he finds in his local surroundings, he draws attention to how the artistic imagination can compensate for the economic limitations many people have in acquiring or buying material objects in the first place.
