The work in this show is an attempt to reconnect and reconfigure a personal cultural and historical heritage. The result is the creation of a visual dialogue that can convey and create specific moments of rediscovery and reclamation. Rather than provide answers, the pieces in the show aim to further complicate the quest to create identities in contemporary American society.
