Trifold Screen

Trifold Screen is a portrait of myself and my relationship with my daughter, who I was apart from in the first half of 2018. Between 2015 and 2018 I collected drawings I made of body parts, of birds and flowers which symbolize body parts or events, and of drawings by my daughter. The eyes of my self portrait figures line up with the eyes of the American Swallow and that of the New Zealand Piwakawaka, representing my two selves in the United States and in New Zealand, the physical distance, the gap, between my daughter and I.
