With all my love + guts, 2019
handmade greeting cards
dimensions variable

With all my love + guts displays a selection of greeting cards made for my mother over a nearly twenty-year period. The cards range from simple scribblings on copy paper to more elaborate and humorous interpretations of the form. The title is in reference to the signature line that appears on a birthday card made from an airplane barfbag — 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.
