Artist Statement Submitted 2020

Inheritance is an in-progress series of photographs that utilizes family photographs in conjunction with performative acts to create a time collage. I work in both self-portraiture and in collaboration with my mother and father to create an interaction with our past selves and across generations. The photographs question genetic similarities between parent and child through masking and unmasking. They also strive to capture the complexities of how we respond to the inherited – traits, memories, and objects.
