Lineage Collection

Ongoing series

It is a natural human tendency to seek connections and meanings in the world around us. I identify with an object for several reasons, including sentimental value, personal attachment or history, cultural significance, even for it’s perceived characteristics or qualities. A family heirloom, like a photograph, reminds me of  loved ones and family roots. It represents intimacy, their personality, and lifestyle. Each piece functions as a glimpse into my stream of consciousness, a tangential view of an inner life bound by the meaning of self. Every part of this collection has a direct connection to who I am, where I came from, or an object I will inherit.
