A series of collages made from stamp-size photographs including images of my maternal grandmother, my mother, my daughter and myself. Interspersed with the portraits are small scale copies of drawings, like time-lapse stills, of an Amaryllis flower at different stages of its life cycle, color chips from a cosmetics chart of various skin tones, and words defining/misidentifying identity based on appearance, race, ethnicity, and nationality.
