"In Immigration Nation II I continue to explore the theme of an immigrant and the impact of the Journey from my personal perspective.
The work is about a feeling that is best expressed in the saying: I am from here, there and nowhere. The dislocation experienced while in constant movement, seeking the solace of roots, is a theme that shapes the sculptures and drawings that I created for IMMIGRATION NATION II.
“In the boat/Unprotected" I express the feeling of abandonment, of desolation that one feels in foreign lands and seas, only with the company of oneself or one's child in this case. Many people visit the gallery and are moved by the work. Many of them remember similar stories. My intention is to show how difficult it is to be an immigrant.
In these days immigrants are targets, forgetting that in this country we are all in one way or anther an immigrant"
