Through etching, silk screen, and other print processes, I seek to find the liminal space between destruction and preservation. This is an attempt to investigate and define what happens when one does not have memories of their personal history or their memories are different than what photos and stories show. Visually, this translates into decay in prints and the use of multiples as an attempt to hold on to these memories that seem both nostalgic and absent. The use of childhood photos throughout my work creates a feeling of nostalgia, while layers of information allude to chaos and the inability to connect to these parts of one’s past. I am interested in presenting a simultaneous memorialization and destruction of this past that feels disconnected as an attempt to talk about these experiences.
