Untitled Quarantine weaving #4
My work is inspired by my Albanian Orthodox heritage and my experiences as a woman, artist, educator, wife, and mother. My art deals with themes of acculturation and feminism. Often I pair stories from antiquity with family lore to create works that manifest themselves as contemporary baroque assemblages or works on paper. My most recent work draws from research on motifs from traditional Albanian kilims (flat woven rugs). Upcoming projects are presenting my research in academic conferences around the country and creating a site specific 72 foot long mural for Terminal1 at LAX.
