In the wake of the U.S. Embassy opening in Jerusalem and the past seven weeks of protests in Gaza, this piece feels timely. I made Diaspora in 2016 after returning from a month long artist residency in Israel/Palestine. It's been sitting in my studio waiting for a wood base forever. I was forced to complete it for a group show next month (see below).
