Each mud print in Unborn, Unwed, Uninhabited is an exploration of what it means to leave home as a young female from rural America. By painting mud from my childhood home over found images I erase myself from what could have been. These photographs have become documentations of my unborn children, unwed lovers and uninhabited houses. While I live my reality, I record the lives that I have left behind and gone beyond. The work is a combination of specific memories and stereotypes, expectations and idealizations of place.
Below are a few images documenting my recent solo exhibition. For all those who came, thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am also in the process of updating my website; here is the home page (just because I’m proud).
