At Home with Our Histories is a series of work that examines images of Americana: doll collections, gun collections, antique furniture, yearbooks, toys, etc. Perhaps as an instinctive response to try to make sense of our current culture by looking back. Or maybe, to find connections that may explain why our history seems so present and unresolved. This series is a reflection of my own, personal histories and a societal, American history. Through my work, I acknowledge that the social problems of today are deeply rooted in our past. Through this dialog with history, I hope to contribute to the redirection of social, psychological and spiritual aspects of the future.
