For December’s PhotoVox, we invite you to join us for a talk with artist Jacque Rupp, who is due to release her third book The Red Purse.
Published by Daylight, The Red Purse is about love, loss, and rebuilding. Shortly after the death of her husband following a long illness, Jacque Rupp bought a red purse, which became deeply personal to the artist as it represented freedom in an otherwise dark and uncertain time as a young widow. The purse sat on Rupp’s dresser for years. She knew she needed to have it, but she did not know why. The Red Purse project is, in the end, not a tale of grief but rather a toast to life, to redefining, to flourishing. The Red Purse, a fictionalized account of Jacque Rupp’s story, is meant to inspire, to prompt conversation, to pay tribute to those we have lost, to those who have struggled, and to those who have evolved.
