Repressive Interiors

Reception - Thursday, April 11th at McMaster Gallery
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Artist talk at 6:00 PM

Our current administration’s choice to use electronic media as a means of communicating to the country has further eroded the boundary between the public and the private. News and social media convey constant information and are part of what would otherwise be a private space. Repressive Interiors explores effective elements of relationships between American women, politics, and the position of electronic media within private spaces. I project my personal experiences with these exchanges into my work. In doing so, I capture the moment where a disembodied set of policies pervades a fleshy body.  My goal is to convey my experiences within this unique point in history, depicting moments when the public and private, along with the personal and political, collide through electronic media.
