Decolonizing Series; Remembering and Moving Forward

REMEMBERING AND MOVING FORWARD

Images can help us revisit our past, both personal and collective. This is a mix of past and current work that talks about time and change. I have long been concerned with excavating truths and responding with authenticity and clarity through concrete symbols and objects. The concept of decolonization came to my awareness in 2020, a time when many people of conscience have come together to rethink many things. Collectively, we are examining the wounds and injustices perpetrated on black, brown, and marginalized peoples. Strong grass-roots movements are emerging; Black Lives Matter, Indigenous Rights, and the “Me Too” movement for women’s empowerment. This collective energy propels us forward as we shed light on injustice and suffering.
