The Los Angeles County Store is pleased to present selected works from my new series, "Slaughterhaus". The “Slaughterhaus” show will run from February 24th, 2018 – March 16, 2018 with an opening reception Saturday, February 24th from 6-8pm.
Los Angeles County Store is located at 4333 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90029.
“Slaughterhaus” is a new series based off of my personal experiences with a debilitating illness that led to frequent surgeries, and the comfort I was able to find in my bedroom. I showcased women who tend to take solace in their bedrooms, away from the traumas and tribulations of daily life.
Each lenticular print features a portrait of a woman in her bedroom juxtaposed with a still life photo of discarded slaughterhouse meat. The stark contrast of serenity with beautifully staged yet grotesque slaughterhouse meat encapsulates life with a disability; often suffering is married with creature comforts. This contrast also illustrates the impersonal nature of hospitalizations while patients are stripped of their independence.
