Through my work and how I really connect to my heritage, really became my most honest self. [It] was the part that encompasses what the generations before me taught me, what my [Dominican] grandmother had taught my father being a single mom, and what my dad, being a single father, taught me. And those values you get from those generations are ways that I connected to my culture. All these connections that I felt I did not belong to or found myself running away from, there was a point that I was finally able to see that there was this line, this rope to to this homeland. There are a few knots in there, but that connection is still there. [...] So in my work I like to encompass this idea of time, and how I can reflect on these experiences and these photographs (that the paintings are based on) that (come) with it.
