My undergraduate art practice has primarily consisted of the exploration of the liminal space between feelings of strength and fragility. The works I create often reflect themes of encapsulating adoption, self-identity, memory, and fear. Employing the use transparent mediums like tar gel, rice paper, emulsions, and resins my work bridges traditional forms of printmaking, drawing and collage. I use marks and fields of texture that reflect the brevity of life and provide narratives of fleeting autobiography. My work typically combines the use of ephemera, paper, thread, and fragments of made and found images that I re-contextualize and combine to create metaphoric narratives. These materials are utilized in effort to pair both graphic and abstract situations mapped from observations of repetition within my life. Through this body of work, I seek to urge the viewer to question and reflect upon their own identity, spirituality, fear, and familial relationships within the broad context of my research.
