Photography: Digital, Photo, Color, Manipulated on Canvas.
A reflection of my own identity through the features of my mother.
My work derives inspiration from using representational photographic family memorabilia, clippings and videos as a basis to produce a series of digital paintings.
My work is the attempt. The attempt to unify, initiate and diversify a basic human experience that echoes the voices of our ancestors that makes us universal in our connection and vulnerability, regardless of race, gender or religion. From the simple act of flipping through old photo albums to recalling past events, I hope the work gives a platform to a type of familiarity that provokes an understanding that can only be absorbed emotionally.
Along with compiling material from VHS tapes, I digitally manipulate images found in photo albums to challenge ideas of authenticity and re-appropriate the aesthetic of aura and memory. Based upon my own familial relationships and passed down information, the work investigates the intuitive interconnectedness and multidimensional relationship between snapshot and portraiture.
