For this series Avena focuses on identity, the individual, the inner child and the notion of family. By reproducing stills from old photos and VHS recordings she explores the translation of imagery between mediums. 
With such rich narrative material to draw upon, Avena found herself on a journey of self discovery as she addresses the fragile relationships within families to heal and overcome deep emotional scars of her childhood through the process of painting.
