“After my father’s passing, I began archiving what remains photographically and finding ways to tell a story. I found multiple collections of small items in boxes along with school work, he was a life long learner. My father proclaimed the title gunsmith during a graphic design class at a two-year college. He worked in the trades a woodworker, carpenter, and blacksmith and would make his own rifle stocks. His love for guns apparently was for markspersonship though a longterm NRA member. As a queer person, I was never comfortable “coming out” to him and became estranged in fear of potential rage. Nesting, is part of a larger body of work-in-progress, A Life Undone revolving around social welfare and the state.”
