“I’ve been making artwork about my family for more than a decade, and over the years, my immediate family have become far more than just subject matter –they’ve become active participants in the creative problem-solving, conceptual development, and the evolution of material and craft of my practice. This exhibition, “Anthology,” marks the first time my work is accompanied by the creative output from members of my family.
In this exhibition, my mother’s botanical illustrations made during her 30 years as a horticulturist, my father’s handmade Windsor chairs, my late grandmother’s self-taught oil paintings, and my great-grandmother’s hand-stitched quilt will be exhibited along with recent pieces of mine based on my mother’s drawings. “Anthology” illustrates the multi-generational aesthetic link amongst a family of makers.”
