Castro says the installation is “simply stated […] about love. It is about heartache, loss and letting go, as well as the reconnection that can be associated with love.

“It’s about love that evolves and revolves. Love that is complicated. Love that comes from the deepest, darkest parts of our hearts and the longing, attachment and grasping that love can evoke from within us.”
Sarah Casto is a self-taught mixed media artist who creates primarily in shadow boxes and collage. A self-described “hunter and gatherer of found objects and natural elements” who uses these items to create, Castro is “inspired by organic shapes and interesting objects” and always uses “fragments of the human form and nature” in her creations.
“We Part to Meet Again” is her first installation piece, and she having spent nearly 20 years working in a retail environment, she says she was “drawn to this space—formally used as a window display—because of its original purpose as well as its accessibility to the public.”
