My practice challenges the idea of permanency using architecture and landscape as a starting point with my photographic documentation. My compositions seek to shift the concepts of home and community using site and time to excavate economic, political and social contexts. Since 1996, my mother’s homeland Peru has been a consistent inspiration for my artwork. However, what this relationship represents on a universal level is the idea of being between worlds. With an interdisciplinary approach embedded in collage, I strive to find ways to develop channels of potential connection while highlighting the fragility of that existence.
