“The Family Tree” series is a deep study of the identity and symbolism of one’s roots.
The drawings/prints are intervened by the artist with pencil and gold ink, The works incorporate her personal journey to motherhood through delicate imagery of the body and nature, and are all accompanied by handwritten Portuguese poems. These perceptively organic ensembles capture a visible story that transcends a woman’s humanity and her process during childbirth to the evolution of a family, all from the artist’s perspective.
The series reflects the palpable nostalgia of womanhood and the story of her family and her own turmoil of losing a child. Through form and symbolism, this body of work regards unconscious repetition, imitation, and survival.
