Through juxtapositions, transparent overlays of paint and ink, shifts in space, grid-like structures and implied narratives I convey both the sense of time’s passage and personal and social memory. References to our biological foundation and to cultural and environmental roots reflect my research into cellular biology and ancient Mesopotamian cultures. These themes are metaphorically conveyed through images that include cellular structures and scientific visual notations, clusters of chairs, figures, ancient writing and family photographs. These prints explore the factors that help to shape us as individuals.
