GENETIC MARKERS (2017)

Part and parcel of the "Mineral Siblings" series, these small works give form to thoughts on what it means to be part of a family. Biological evidence of kinship such as hair, cells and fingerprints are woven into sketches that address the human experience of being a child, a sibling, a parent. 

In the world of biology, genetic markers are used to identify individuals or to pinpoint mutations, evidence of adaptation. As we grow from childhood into the self-awareness of adulthood, we find our own ways of grappling with whatever bounty or hardship our heritage imparts to us.
