Walk, record, draw, print, repeat.
Listen to a rhythm I hear with the coming of my breath.
Exploring the parched land and dried grasses, I find relics, fragments, stones, bones, and ruins that tell a story of surviving.
Paint on skin, in video, digitally processed, an iterative way to meditate on physical boundaries, containment, and impermanence. I worked quickly in this series, generating brushstrokes that come about through movement and response to place.
I become familiar with some of the visible remains of a past marked by deportation, imprisonment, extermination, and by survival and recovery. Begun at the SERDE Artist Residency in Aizpute, Latvia, with a series of video meditations, this work also connects me to my own family origins.
