Pictures In Our Home2015
Pictures In Our Home is a series of small, one-to-one replicas of photographs that my partner and I have framed in our home. The photographs retain memories of past moments that once framed become objects in a home, much like furniture. These intimate objects become artifacts to a life lived with the drawings activated by materials like clear gloss medium and gold leaf to suggest their original references. In particular, these materials sentimentally signify queer memories in a liminal state of suspension. These references to archived materials further illustrate the emotive states we find ourselves in around nostalgia and memory.
