I started this ongoing project on the cusp of Covid and found myself exploring the emotional complexity of exile, of loss that is inherent in living. In this context, my work explores displacement, isolation, and strength.
This work is layered with skins of collaged paper, drawings, paint, ink, charcoal, and bits of cloth. These layers reflect the order and disorder of events that occur throughout life. Within them, symbols and maps emerge as cryptic messages.
