CURRENT EXHIBITION

35th & HarrisonSolo Exhibition

January 8th – March 2nd, 2019

Chehalem Cultural Center, Newberg, OR

35th & Harrison examines the ways in which temporary housing is transformed from an impersonal to personal space. Personal possessions, traditions, and acts of care make these spaces our own. The objects one selects to present and live alongside in their space provide a tangible reflection of the resident’s character, or, by extension, a reflection of the relationship between people.

This body of work juxtaposes the objects my partner and I brought to our apartment with the fixed architectural features and surrounding environment. The works explore how we have created a home that reflects us within the constraints of an architecture that remains unchanged with each new tenant.
