Solo show at SHDW Studio
October - November 2016
The works in Volvamos act as tangible snapshots of a residency spent in Oaxaca City, Mexico. Collected souvenirs were used to create a fresh body of work inspired by my stay. Handmade paper by local artisans, naturally-dyed wool from the sheep of a weaver, fiber from the Agave plant, and Oaxaca’s ubiquitous grocery bag; these materials carry an intrinsic story of a culture and its past. Though the manipulation and preservation of these materials new forms of documentation are explored and put on display. Volvamos seeks to engage the viewer in the act of story making, contributing new content and purpose to these enshrined memories.
