Tales from the Dining Room Table


An examination of the workings of family and the past characterizes the pieces in Tales, which includes paintings, encaustics, assemblages, writings, and video. These elements, interacting within a manipulated space, are meant to evoke a domestic setting. The exhibit revolves around the viewerÕs interpretation of nostalgia and family dynamics, particularly focusing on the wispy quality and dysfunction of home life. My intention is to convey feelings of familiarity and discomfort through composition and inherent narratives.
