Great Migrations paints a portrait of an abandoned house, the land it sits on, and all the objects within that have been witness to the past. I wanted to make artwork that instills a sense of nostalia, mystery, childlike curiousity, and the desire to explore and know more. To illumintae the feeling of opening a box of photographs that hasn’t been touched in a hundred years and trying to put together a story of what they mean. In this series, through glimpses of text, watercolors, sculptural pieces, and drawings, the viewer is presented with clues and pieces to the history of this house. Putting these clues together makes a story that will vary between individuals, but maintains a sense of whimsy and mystery.
