The starting point for Oceans Apart (1989) and The Boy who Watches Ships Go By (2002) was both autobiographical and historical narratives involving the sea. Using the sea as a way of exploring the themes of separation and the diaspora experience of migration, I look at journeys that have crisscrossed the Atlantic Ocean both east and west.
These voyages echo the sea's own relentless movement of waves and tides: journeys out toward the sea's horizon and journeys of arrival from the same horizon. What traces are left of the past accumulate in contemporary coastal locations.
