Stand for the photo
Acrylic on recycled mdf. SOLD
The old call of 'stand for the photo' hardly means anything in a world of disposable, filterable, editable, instant, photographs. I want to use a snapshot of a grandmother and children sharing a moment. The normal, everyday life that has become rare in the recent past. Through engaging with the source material it became a project about ‘Visiting’ and how ‘Visiting Nana’ and ‘Visiting Mom’ are two different experiences, though the same place and person. I am an observer in the former, becoming my mother as I am now the one calling out 'stand for the photo'. The project has opened avenues of exploration around themes such as ‘home’, ‘parent/child relationships’ ‘grandparent/parent/child relationships’.
