Artist statement:

These three pieces belong to a mode of my art practice I call "embodied memory". They are assemblages of found objects, personal relics, fragments, and scraps. Gloves, clothes, dolls, are recurrent materials—as they vividly summon the bodies of the absent. Loss, distance, remembrance, and longing, are the ethereal stuff I am sewing together. Think of those as small totems. Thinks of those as portals connecting present and past.
