My identity inspires one aspect of my artwork, which concerns the Holocaust. I am the grandchild of three Jewish Holocaust survivors and the great-grandchild of Holocaust victims. My art is an attempt to comprehend violent discrimination, both during the Holocaust and today. I explore the inconceivability of such large-scale genocide— even as a grandchild of the Holocaust— and yet its unavoidable, ever-present intergenerational effects. The goal of my work is to initiate productive dialogue about the importance of tolerance and the preservation of cultural and biological diversity.
