This is a personal project about merging woman and home, which has various iterations and has lasted over 20 years. The photographs are life-size installations made in the studio using the figure and household objects as subject matter. The humorous, yet poignant, narrative scenes that I create in the studio are about women who use their objects and décor to shore themselves up against a dark, scary world. In the latest narratives, “Disasters,” the woman becomes the victim of her home to her fatal end; her objects take over, and the woman is crushed by her own possessions and obsessions.
