FIRE IN THE HEART, FIRE IN THE HOME

2018. Graphite on paper. 70 x 50 cm

With graphite, there is a heightened connection with the materials, touching, feeling, and exploring physical surfaces. I took rubbings from the walls of my house, and worked to create forms similar to a fire.
Each drawing based on wall rubbings became a way to process and solidify massive shifts in the social dynamics I was feeling at home.
