Pochoir on strips of paper woven together and stitched with linen thread, mounted on wooden armature11" x 11" x 3/8"
An exploration of how memory functions, especially within the context of reconstructing history. This imagery is based on a 1975 photo of Southeast Asian refugees being rescued at sea, but in its abstraction–the loss of details or memory–this moment could be any migration story in modern history.
Pochoir on both sides of paper, with collage figures stitched with linen thread18" x 13"
An exploration of personal and collective history, and how we remember, misremember, and interpret those stories. Based on a portrait of my mother’s family at Fort Chaffee, which served as one of four processing centers in 1975 for refugees of the Vietnamese civil war.
