Daily Marks Series, 2022, Mixed Media on Paper, 30” x 22”
In the Daily Marks Series, I used my body as an instrument in order to process memory by creating a set of marks each day on paper. The goal of this piece was to create a space where I could experience mindfulness while rewriting memory through somatic movement and experience. I allowed the marks to be influenced by my state-of-mind during each day; some marks were calm and gentle, while others were expressive and bold. To add, this series is a performance and ritual as I must visit the paper each day to pull the marks from my body/press, and by doing so, I am able to engage with my inner-workings.
