Sonya Yong James statement

The exhibit is about the history of place and time and myself inside of it. The work is imagined in a dream state divided between two worlds in which I can locate myself comfortably in neither. Herein are the spaces between beauty and terror and my questions of past and recent loss. These are poems and songs of farewell to the departed and a celebration of second chances, mine and the ones that are gone. In the objects, are ghosts of a past life and shadows of what might have been.
