Series of 25 frames
Paper and gouche
The inspiration for this piece came from a wall in my grandmother’s house that hosts 28 black frames (of all different sizes) including individual pictures of me and all of my cousins. The wall is overwhelming and strange, but when I look at it I feel the warmth of my grandmother’s love. I wanted these 25 frames to exemplify the unique character and quirkiness of a large family and the nostalgia that I feel for my grandmother’s house when I’m away.
