My sense of longing predisposes me to recreate objects that belong to my family members. In learning to live with my emotional past and relationships, I value the physical look and details of each object. I especially appreciate handcrafted objects that my mother crocheted, such as sheets, covers and curtains. Through recreating the objects based on my own personal interpretation, I start to understand the intense process of working alone in contemplation. The more I personalize my family’s possessions, the more I am able to see myself in them, and once I have invested myself in the objects, it becomes impossible to avoid them. I transform objects to preserve not only the objects but also my memories and relationships.
My working method is to create an abstract image on to a two-dimensional surface using humble materials, such as pencil and paper, and my work places an emphasis upon line, grids, and fields of subtle color. My work becomes ethereal and subtle – it looks like an image stuck in a memory. It creates the illusion that the images are removed and decomposed, yet stained with memory. I appreciate the objects when they portray themselves as vulnerable and delicate, and when they reveal a hidden story that a person possesses and conceals. The relationship among the objects, repeated actions, and anticipation evokes unpredictable power and charged energy. By engaging both the notions of “lost” and “care,” I take control of lost through caring.
