Mother's Daughter

The Mother’s Daughter Series continues the investigation of identity by integrating images of myself with generations of women within my family. The work also incorporates images of the cosmic, with microscopic images of melanin and stem cells continuing the micro/macro relationship within the work, while also taking an oval like shape, referencing both the biological, eggs, cells, etc. but also the scientific, slide gels, medical/scientific slides, as well as Victorian photographic portraiture. The work illustrates implicit and explicit identities integrated within one individual. Through the merging of images, I seek to create a hybrid, which exposes the shifting of identities in relationship to both historical and social political understandings.
