What I Knew Then

Wax, oil and paper on birch panel, 2016, 24"w x 24"h x 1.5"d

In the series Traces (including these pieces), I use photography and painting to explore how ancestry and memory influence individual growth. With oil paint and wax, I copy and preserve elements of family photographs. Creating ambiguous narratives with figures or objects, Traces considers significant moments in development, such as creating an identity separate from one’s parents.
