“20x24 Polaroid Pieces”
The “Polaroid groups” represent an on going investigation into the cyclic nature of life and familiar (family) mores. The linking of 40’s and 50’s imagery with contemporary phraseology accomplishes what has been described as “ time-bridging connections”. My childhood forms the basis for much of the emotional and psychological basis of this work. Each piece is made up of four 20 x 24 Polaroid photographs. The images suggest “instant photo” yet the scale and content do not. Each piece is intended to pose the question “ to what extent have we internalized the rationalizations of false hope and expectations, and with them, the self-victimization they entail.
