Portfolio > Family History

I am interested in the intersection between embodied experience and social structures. My newest series, Family History, is a meditation on illness, caregiving, and the experience of navigating the healthcare system. The work, which represents a departure from my previous focus on urban space, was catalyzed by my partner’s diagnosis with genetic cancer. Many of the works in this series focus on motion, sometimes through self-portraiture. In this work I use a process of layering screenprint and then sanding in it away as a way to capture the ways that memory both very sharp in some places and also seems fleeting and unreal.
