Description
"7 color silkscreen was produced in conjunction with a two month residency at Self-Help Graphics through an Artist & Communities/Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation and NEA grant. In this piece, a young boy is pulling back a screen to reveal an array of images which represent memory and the passage of time. These images form a visual arc or lifeline which flow towards a taiko drum head with rose imprinted on it. The rose (an image symbolic of my stay in East LA) represents the heart and pulse. "KAERU/ FINDING HOME" is a piece which explores the construction of identity through a reconnection with the past." Colors used: Yellow, Gray/Green, Light Gray Green, Blue, Pink, Black, and Yellow/Brown.
