 PROCESSED

An extension of my ongoing examination 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.
 

Layering nostalgic photos of the romanticized 50's and 60's “housewife” beneath images of shiny appliances, it becomes obvious how we have become slaves to the very machines that were intended to alleviate us from the labourious tasks of house work, as we endlessly work to assemble, organize, clean, repair and replace them. Starting with the digital image and plugged in like the appliances themselves, the works have been applied with paint, text and drawing in a need to reconnect with my own body and the importance of mark making within my practice.
