Image Statement: A collaboration with my late grandfather. Her tears are comprised of an old film photograph of a hunting trip he took in the 70’s. ‘You speak so well now’ was said to me by a former colleague after listening to me give a talk about my work. This piece was in process while I was giving this talk and was unnamed at the time. His backhanded compliment was the perfect title for this piece.
