Ties That Bind

Ties That Bind examines ways that our identities interweave and manifest as a result of experiences together at the artist's family home in rural Kansas. Inspired by Patricia Kline’s statement that “For most of us our identities are very much tied to where we grew up,” environmental still life and landscape images made within my family’s house and land reflect the visceral connection between the females and the land, home, and familial keepsakes and objects."
