Dust Memories is a series of drawings, paintings, and collages that communicate the ambiguous and anxious moments of my deployment with the 1244th Transportation Company in support of combat operations in Iraq in 2003 and 2004.
In 2008, a series of ten artist books were produced. The hand bound accordion book and it’s cyclical structure was conceived as a metaphor for continually repeating memories of my deployment, as well as representing the reality that this journey in many ways is still being carried out.
The book was made with a generous grant from Booklyn Arts and has been collected by many private and public collections. Public Collections: Clark Arts Institute, Lafayette College, Library ofCongress, Pritzker Military Library, Stanford University, University of California Irvine, University of Connecticut, and Yale University.
