Domestic Views

Installation, 2016

A Space To Ourselves, 2016, four framed aquatint etchings; sheet rock, wood, fasteners, carpet, orange peel spray texture, latex paint, and fabric

Domestic Views was developed from my undergraduate thesis 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.

This piece, created while a graduate student at the University of Kansas, drew upon my fascination with works on paper and 2-dimensional strategies with materials. Conceived as assemblages, the sculptures retained the picturesque quality of my works on paper, but actively worked to queer the objects and spaces they represented.
