Artist Statement

Personal Choice #2  is a digital collage combining an "excerpted" archival image from the New York Public Library's Media Collection and an original text I wrote. The image features the Broyards, a large multiracial American family previously unaware of each other due to legacies of slavery and its impact on mixed-race children, during their family reunion. The Personal Choice series is part of my larger project, Obligation to Others Holds Me in My Place, a study of intimacy at the scale of the immediate family.
