Imagery of the home acts as a metaphor of domestic and feminine ideals. Some of these assemblage pieces were inspired by the bare composition of real estate listings and named after the streets for which they are found. I find that abandoned spaces can give the haunting sense of revealing oppressed memories. These naïve spaces that I am creating document traces of life's remains, while elements of unnoticed imperfections, scratches, torn edges and peeling layers are preserved into the surroundings and act as a visual reminder and history of marks often taken for granted. By emphasizing these modest details, I am interested to juxtapose the discarded with personal collections and saturated colors that are assembled into a nostalgic encounter that lend space for the viewer’s own past or future narratives.
