“Distant Travels” by Cher Musico is a photography piece printed on canvas.
From the artist: ” Part of my exploration within my Filipinx-American identity involves deconstructed manila envelopes. Manila paper products were once made with abaca fiber, a native plant of the Philippines. I’ve been diving into family photographs & creating image transfers on deconstructed manila envelopes of childhood photographs of self with an object. Then I take photographs of those image transfers with the actual object from those pictures. These images were from a time before understanding my queerness or any sense of my identity. The past & present all in the same place, still relevant to my queerness; all a part of what I hold a connection to.”
