With all my love + guts (2019)
Eye Lounge
Phoenix, AZ
This exhibition pairs text-based works from 2015-2016 with greeting cards made for my mother over a period of 25 years, ranging from simple scribblings on copy paper to more elaborate and humorous interpretations of the form. The title itself is in reference to a line from a birthday card made from an airplane barf bag—an item that had become part of a running joke between us when I would travel to and from NYC. Through fragments of diaristic information, the cards begin to generate a narrative portrait of our relationship to one another.
