 Croatia

 

 

I went to Croatia to use my art for social change. I studied the language so that I could make a promise to the women war refugees, that through my painting, I would make visible the legacy of cruelty and transgression that rewrites the personal history of women and children for generations.

My images are metaphors that record some point in the process of concealing or disclosing the truth.

Trauma from all forms of violence and abuse starts as a site-specific experience that soon takes on a life of its own until it becomes mapped onto the psyche. Until disclosed, this deracination often undermines destiny.

At the beginning of this series, I use images of totemic horses and crows, gradually moving into portraits of imaginary women. My current work is derived from photographs I have taken of friends and family.  I have adapted these for use in this series.
