I am interested in combining groups of objects with printed images. My new work grew out of sculptures in which I explored the connection between my Lakota husband and myself as our relationship evolved. I was working to understand the differences between us, between our childhoods, and the rituals we were brought up with. This work blends family and personal photographs with vintage Native prints in a collage and photo-manipulation process. This new photomontage series embodies the assumptions we make about others based on stereotypes. It explores myths and media stereotypes of Indigenous culture and American culture, memories, and the ability to be wrong.
