Metal Arch. Ferrier, 2022.
Delighted to have the opportunity to submit work from my Borderlands: A metaphorical representation of migrants in Texas series to Klompching gallery in New York.
These images explore the themes of place, belonging, migration and memory. It occurred to me while reflecting on my practice that the words related to my methodology mimicked the vilification of migrants; hunting, shooting, dissecting, concealing, disrupting and distorting. A mediative hands on approach led to transformed, folded and constructed imagery. The folded images became metaphors for the treatment migrants and concealed within the folds lie the unjust truths.
