Family Portrait uses 17,000 yellow-tipped quilting pins pushed directly into the wall. The wall of family portraits is a ubiquitous element of how we envision the ideal family life. Yet, every family has something that isn’t quite right, a piece of the puzzle that is askew. For this wall installation, I recreated the outline of a wall of family pictures with the picture planes absent of any family memento. One of the squares is slightly askew, typical in a wall of portraits and the family itself.

 
 
 
 
 

Mixed Media Installations are custom made as part of the solo exhibition I am creating for a particular space. While they are site-specific, these works consider the exhibition as a whole and the specific work’s interaction with the other pieces in the show. Each work is hand made by the artist for a particular space and individual needs. Purchasing price is determined by the size of the space and the scope of the work. I work with each client to determine their needs and budget. For exhibition inquiries, a site visit and specs are necessary to determine the specifics of the installation. For each institution or venue, I want to ensure that my site responsive installation will engage the audience in a multitude of ways.
