memories of things unsaid (2019 — )

For some, family is a wonderful space; a connection of spirits that offers a sense of rooting, welcome, safety and joy. For others, family is a dark place that serves up a sense of bondage, rejection, violence and betrayal. 

Perhaps, family is all we seek. Or, maybe it is the idea of family that we seek and not family in and of itself. I attempt to strip away the band-aid of my family. To look at the persons, the places, the spaces, and the trauma we never speak of; but our bodies always remember.
