Abstract

Nostos is an exhibition of paintings and textile works that are manifestations of my experience of this extraordinary past year. The work reflects several themes: documentary of the everyday as a form of resistance, feminist art practice, and art-as-therapy. A feminist perspective reclaims domestic or quotidian subject-matter as socially and culturally significant, and acknowledges the place of traditionally female labor in the pantheon of fine art. In representationally-painted images and stitched “maps,” I process personal realities such as domesticity, comfort, geography, the passage of time, and how I observe the world.
