Hunter/Hunted

My current work has images of my father and my Polish relatives (who originally came to the U.S. in 1901). I have created several mixed-media works based on photographs I resurrected from my Grandmother’s house after my father’s death in 2015. I have been fascinated by the process of uncovering family photos to build a history that was not present during my childhood. Looking at these images helps me try to identify what it may have been like to come to this country at the turn of the century and how the expectations that were placed on my father affected his life and as well as my own.
