Joanna Kambourian - What I am I owe to those who went before

Silkscreen print on Grandma Lucy’s Hanky.

This hanky is from my grandmother’s apartment in nyc, in fact I think it is perhaps a cloth serviette?
Nonetheless, it is a domestic memento of my family and a reminder of my father and his mother who mourns him amidst bouts of dementia and senility at 98 years old.
The pattern is her wallpaper, which up to a year ago graced the walls of her apartment for close to 60 years and was the background to their lives.
