In Finding the Light, painting is a time-based media. It is a practice of searching for hope in rituals and memories of my daily life. Through the process of painting, I maintain connections to my chosen family when space and time keep us apart. I collage together references from videos, photographs, drawings, and my own memory, all of which have varying degrees of clarity. I excavate these often blurred, dim, or dull images to find the light that is already there.
