CLICK ON IMAGES TO ENLARGE & VIEW GALLERY Don’t Look Back looks at how the past is suggested by small gestures and often rewritten by institutional methods of display. The paintings were undertaken during a Firstdraft Studio Residency Program in 2012. Don’t Look Back uses family slides and photos, over saturated cheap postcards, and everyday objects to create and imply domestic histories. This approach to the past is a major part of ongoing exploration of the relationship between the image and object, the past and audience.
