Artwork Description:   The images from a series in progress, Our Spirit Life, are photomontages which actually had a long hibernation period. My mom passed away a decade ago in January and then this year in the same month my father passed away. Both times boxes of family photos came into my possession. Over the years, I'd written poems and done tribute pieces of art for my parents, but Id been intending to do something with these inherited photos in particular. Going through them again as I prepared a slideshow for dads Wake lines of a Laurie Anderson song kept coming to mind: when my father died it was like a whole library burned to the ground. Indeed, knowing how much of my insular upbringing has vanished I created these montages as a memento mori for the life which was, yet also as an acknowledgement of how much it is encapsulated as a living story within me.
