Ongoing Project begun in 2013

This body of work consists of a series of photographs that depict items from my domestic space. Both stacked and bundled, balanced and wrapped, the items include: clothing from my closet, crumpled paper, woven copies of ex-husband's shirts, and paintings built as horizontal pedestals. Here, cloth items co-mingle with hand-made dresses, and fabric items received from friends are paired with pieces of crumpled paper painted to mimic cloth. Each configuration is carefully arranged and photographed before it is disassembled and stored. Each photograph has been tweaked dramatically in post-production, using both Photoshop and/or worked by hand.

The materials list on each work has a Footnote that accompanies each piece when displayed in the gallery.
