An extension of my ongoing examination of the effects of suburban culture, Process-ed is a new series of photo based works that explore the interior landscapes of our existence.
Returning to my figurative roots, this show begins to inventory the numerous electrical inventions of convenience that occupy our kitchen cupboards and secretly undermine our physical ability to complete simple tasks. Playfully layering nostalgic photos of the romantic “housewife” beneath images of shiny appliances, it becomes obvious how we have become slaves to the machines as we endlessly work to
assemble, organize, clean, repair and replace them. Plugged in like the appliances themselves, the works have been applied with paint, text and drawing in a need to reconnect with with my own body and the importance of mark making within my practice.
