LINEAGES is a series of drawings with

graphite and thread that evolved after

the passing of my paternal grandmother. 

Working with her handwritten letters and 

three handknit throws she made for me

over her lifetime, I began to trace the

loops of her handwriting and each loop

of the afghans. Sometimes overlapping

or missing a stitch, I found my movement

began to echo motions she would have

made while knitting.  Both a comfort and

strenuous, the performative work produced marks that speak to the intricacies, gaps and swells of relationships we have with one another.  

The recorded sound elements served to

document the meditative drawing process and signify how sounds have the ability to travel through time and space like the objects and memories they are attached to.
