Are we the sum of our memories—even those that are not our own? In Traces, I use photography and painting to consider the role of ancestral memory in identity. With layers of paper, oil paint and wax or resin, I copy and preserve elements of family photographs to create ambiguous narratives with figures, landscapes or objects—exploring how our fictionalization or imperfect remembering of the past plays a part in determining who we become, and influences what we leave behind.
