House at Yaupon

2022. Screenprint, Woodcut, letterpress. 46X61cm

In this work, House at Yaupon, I wanted the objects and liminal space to reveal a pause of imminent histories that are layered in simultaneous visible and invisible acknowledgement. By necessity we lose our substance and leave this earth and some part of that substance is gained or lost in translation by those who follow. I have chosen a space that no longer exists—a particular room that was in my history. I initially thought of tape or cord as a thread from past to present, it eventually became a decorated ribbon-object that manifests an entire person and their life through a language they would recognize. An altered space and an altered person appear together in a space where they can exist.
