Artist Statement

Following the death of my great grandmother, I began to document the interior and exterior spaces of her home in an attempt to preserve her fading presence, resonate within both the décor and objects that resided there. The photographed spaces are both fluid and static in duality in that they reflect not only the past, but reveal the present through their continually transforming states, the gradual removal of her identity, and authorship from within the home.

Absence sought to hold onto something that would soon be lost and gone forever, functioning as a testament to an existence.

The series is presented in two separate parts, the first of which documents the home shortly after my grandmother’s death, and the second, during the time of its re-development.
