In this body of work, I explore thoughts and questions about my relationship to Greece as a fourth generation Greek-American. What does it mean to be part of the omogenia (Greek diaspora) when the first and second generations are now gone? What are the roles of pop culture and the internet in building identity? What are the difficulties and joys of reclamation? For the past several years, I’ve used artwork to address these and other questions.
In December of 2018 I exhibited the early results of this exploration as part of Proof of Thought, an exhibition of work by the Good Manufacturing Collective in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
