Respite is a series of ink paintings
that attend to the subtle fickleness of life and the ephemerality of its passing. I contrast mundane moments with my grandmother’s fight with lung cancer, a parting that interrupted the pace of life. Ultimately, Respite serves as a remembrance, a sequence of fragments that resist the natural and automatic process of forgetting.
