I come from a family of inherent conflict, rooted from the union of opposing ancestries with subsequent tension that lingers due to unresolved trauma(s). Opposites Attract depicts my grandparent’s wedding photograph, screenprinted with bleach, then woven together. I seek to explore the information deemed significant within an image and the inability to contain memory, despite a record of it. The original image only exists as a low-resolution, undersized digital scan, as the original print has long been lost or discarded.
