Dear friends, family and colleagues,
I am so excited to share my new digital photographs with you in my first solo exhibition. I hope to see you at the opening this Friday, March 9, 2012, 5-7 pm in the Gateway Gallery at the Maryland Institute College of Art. For those of you who are not in the area, please visit my website to see the series, Everyone In The Family Feels It. RSVP on Facebook here.
Anthropologist Walter Goldschmidt states, “That with war, as with all matters cultural, the society shapes natural human capacities and potentialities to its accepted purposes, reinforcing some and suppressing others…by systematically rewarding and punishing, by indoctrinating youth, creating role models to be emulated, and honoring those who perform well.” Everyone in the Family Feels It is a series of photographs that explore the missing father figure within the military lifestyle of my sister‘s family. The father’s absence affects the whole family.

A collaboration between Michelle Gomez and Jonathan Wille, The First Supper is both an installation and three performances that deals with cultural and identity issues by looking at the idea of a traditional family. During the performances, viewers witness the artists enacting dysfunction at a family dinner, exploring the notion of roles and performance particular to each family member. The father figure, transformed into a character through generalized stereotypes acts as the main character of the narrative. As three hour performances, viewers are invited to come and go as they please, offering an alternative to a more common audience-performer dynamic. Like a theater set, between performances the vibrant and chaotic dining room installation echoes of the absence of the performers, emphasizing the physical presence of the viewer and their own performative roles as they enter the space. Support for The First Supper is provided in part by the Flo McGarrell Collaborative Projects Fund at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

This little gem sold this week at the Sagamore Hotel for the 80” of Art auction in celebration of New World’s 25th anniversary. All proceeds benefited the VIsual Art Department at New World School of the Arts. The opening was a success! Check out how it turned out here. Check out photos from the reception!
This painting was done in 2010 during my Junior year at MICA. Although it is different from what I am making now (Photographs mostly), it explored the theme of broken relationships which is an idea I have been interested in for a long time and have recently discovered as a reoccurring narrative in my thesis.
Happy to give back to my high school in any way I can. If it weren’t for that little family…I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I’m displaying a small painting in Miami on Tuesday, Nov 8 at the Sagamore Hotel! Proud to be an alumni of this great school exhibiting alongside some amazing and famous alumni! Check it out and let me know what you think! I will be in Baltimore so e-mail me at email@example.com if you do go.
