When my family immigrated from the Soviet Union, they brought with them collections of photographs, objects and home-videos that have been a continuous source of inspiration in my practice. My current practice and the pieces on view here, encompass a series of paintings and works on paper made using rapeseed wax (sourced from Eastern Europe), paint, dyes, cloth, and archival photographs. 


These works explore memory and history through the physical act of burying and unearthing, layering and decay, as a material process of preservation. I am interested in the things we worship and cherish, and also of that which we dread and fear. My explorations of memory and identity are bound to confrontations with mortality and the converging histories from which we descend.
