“I am interested in building a fictional narrative with connections to history as well as to the present. It’s like I’m illustrating a novel that doesn’t exist. If it did, it would probably be a lot like Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, or Turn of the Screw- novels which function as social commentary as well as haunting epics of supernatural romanticism. ” – Marci Washington.
