The artistic processes of both Wolf and the arpilleristas, while yet so different in their form and their origins, delve into the imaginations of their memories to create their art. For both, it is an art distinctly personal, and yet it inevitably speaks for a larger community. That they create again an individual and collective memory of the past demonstrates the transformative potential of both text and visual art, for both their personal self-identities and the world about them.
