We Have Made These Lands What They Are: The Architecture of Slavery
My current plantation series, Letterpress on Hahnemühle, or cotton rag.
Don't Knock at the Door Little Child: Wessyngton Plantation
The first of my Plantation Series, this body of work focuses on Wessyngton Plantation, for generations the property of my husband’s ancestors and their descendants.
This photo-collage series documents West-Indian migration to the United States through the experience of one family - mine. The works are made from archival photos and documents, gouache, paper and digital camera. Each palm serves as a reliquary of a collective memory.
Sticking with the concept of architecture, I’ve lately been working with the medium of blueprint, or cyanotype, using the historical photographic process in a contemporary framework.
