Gone Home

thesis
posted on 2024-03-25, 01:59 authored by Amelia Mendelsohn

My work depicts the subtle tension that exists within domestic spaces when destructive familial conflict and inherited gender roles are buried beneath familiarity. I draw on conceptualizations of the domestic sphere, memory, and feminist understandings of the uncanny to visualize the psychological unease that exists within the home. My paintings utilize personal family photography as an entry point to discuss broader issues of gender and inheritance, and I engage with autotheory to move in-between my personal experience and a larger conceptualization of the domestic sphere.
