In my work, I often bring together printmaking, drawing, and video installation in order to initiate the dialogue about identity, locality, time, and memory; the unrolling of time
I juxtapose printed and projected layers and investigate the corporal as well as emblematic distance between the materiality of printed work and the ephemera of video projection. I assemble spaces where I call upon the renaissance scientific perspective, the picture-plane window, the medieval golden background, and the balance between the printmaking medium immediacy and indirectness.
I assemble video projections not entirely unlike the layers in the prints, refer to the images in prints and drawings, draw, and diminishing the gap between the trace and the traced. The constructed memory can then become the object of nostalgia; the memory of a place and not the place itself become the subject of remembrance. Revealing that ones personal stakes are in several places at once, no longer anchored in native soil, memory itself can become diasporic.
