“& ldquo; Rest belongs to the brand-new series of work, Family History, which was catalyzed by my late partner’& rsquo; s illness and my experience navigating the health system. I utilize self-portraiture as a way to rebuild memory, re-performing and photographing regular motions, which I then equate into woodblock and silkscreen prints. The works are not a lot about medical diagnosis, disease, or passing away as they have to do with the liminal area of living in between.”
