Paintings > Yizkor (Remember)
The paintings in the series, Yizkor, are introspective explorations of the relationships among memory, death and birth. My father died on my birthday, tangibly and forever linking his passing to my beginning. With imagery inspired by personal memories, family narratives, photographs, and religious texts, these works are symbolic representations of the juncture of physical transience and my ancestry. They reflect on the process of mourning and upon mortality as the evolution from outer shell to soul.
