Integral to my various bodies of work is an interest in time and change. Historical research is often part of my artistic practice. These concerns are reflected in recent work on my family’s immigration and assimilation to the United States. Old passports, shipping manifests, naturalization papers, photographs, and clothing are incorporated into the artwork. Using layers of various opacities, diverse time periods are blended together. The enduring impact of my parents’ values of social justice and religion is a recurring theme. As is my practice, this autobiographical work places my experiences in a larger social context.
