A State of Reimagining: Reconnection and Belonging Through Mark-Making
This autoethnographic research project seeks to explore mark-making within my drawing practice, as a tool of reconnection and belonging, in the wake of the loss of my mother. My project draws upon family archival photographic material that gathers my curiosities of the stories, landscapes and agriculture behind it. This material sets the narratives for each drawing wherein I express my wonder’s through the tool of mark-making. The exploration of mark-making in this project creates a sense of belonging and reconnection through drawing, allowing me to reconnect through loss and restore belonging to my homeland.
