Veil is a series of private actions between the artist and a viewer inside a sanctuary of white linen. Each interaction is unique and spontaneous. I seek to blur the line between religion and art by appropriating rites from my heritage. I do not reenact sacred rituals, rather, I borrow their gestures and reinvent them as my own.
