"My narrative deals with family issues that trouble and define me. Twentieth century's wars and political crimes marked my ancestors’ paths, wounding their souls, influencing their life choices, passing their pain and search for "home" to my generation. In my quest to understand the past in order to realistically shape my identity, I use family records reconnecting to their histories through my art."
