A Scar is a Question Mark
My work explores cyclical relationships between loss and desire, perfection and fallibility, repetition and rarity. In A Scar is a Question Mark, I reflect upon my relationship with my father and the shape of the scar he bore until his death. The title suggests continuity between the permanence and malleability of memory. In the context of this exhibition, obsessive gestures underscore these relationships and represent a reverence for ritual through hand-drawn lines and enigmatic imagery. Photographs resist representation and sculptures are trompe l’oeil, emphasizing the disconnection between seeing and comprehending while negotiating the boundary between illusion and authenticity. The oscillation between these subtle nuances point to the ephemerality of presence in objects, images, and ultimately ourselves.
