In her paintings, Hettie Inniss works around the complexities of memory and identity. By questioning the constructability and reliability of memories, she sheds light on the ways in which memory influences how we see ourselves and each other. Through her use of memory as a tool to navigate these complexities, Hettie opens up a space that counters binary ways of thinking about identity. In her work, there is an intentional allowance for a less restricted state of mind that can unconceal new ways of thinking about identity. By rejecting the binary ways of thinking that have influenced her experience as a person of dual heritage, Hettie opens up new possibilities for understanding the complexities of identity.
