Domestic Views was developed from my investigation on intimacy between bodies, looking to the home as a site for this physical connection. Started in 2012 from a series of photographs, these works became a way to research narrative, image, portraiture, and home. These small etchings, created while I was a graduate student, present the objects my partner and I brought into our new apartment. These ordinary objects become stand-ins for us, providing quiet moments of contemplation. Within this seriality of works, objects repeat throughout the scenes and a narrative may or may not reveal itself. The images are about what is there and not there through an omission of literal representations of the body and deeper focus on spaces for bodies. Collectively, this work asks: What traces do we leave behind in the spaces we occupy?
