This series of photographic collages initially began with an intention around play, experimentation and beauty. After their creation I began a dialogue with my MFA advisor about the work. We spoke about why, as a white artist, I had chosen to use people of different skin colors in my work. This questioning was the beginning of a continued years long deep dive for not only myself but those close to me around issues of race, racism, unconscious bias, white supremacy, fragility and centrality. I am grateful for the work and my advisor's questions of me as I am forever changed on this journey, learning and unlearning, becoming more conscious and shining a light on the unconscious.
