Photographs created on the iPhone from my four week journey in Costa Rica. Drawings are recent works with one specifically inspired by children in Costa Rica.
Material artifacts are passed down across generations of family members as a way of sustaining relationships and renewing ideas of shared heritage, history and values. These heirlooms often offer connections to the past that extend before and likely beyond the current owner’s life. Yet these objects are silent. They gain voice only through the collection and interpretation of their specific stories, context, uses, and significances.
This collection of objects represents an index of my memories of and relationship with my grandfather. He was a pipe-fitter, carpenter, maker and baptist. He taught me the value of hard work and what it means to have character. (among other things)
