Artist Statement

These artworks communicate through both their rendered subject matter, as well as the processes used to create them. They all investigate the themes of time, memory, identity and psychology. The engravings are inspired by the experience of indecision. They are created through a cyclical process of laying down and removing information, which mirrors the process of weighing pros and cons. The tapestries aim to consider the complicated role of Mother, and question societal constructs, gender role expectations, cultural indicators of success, and the portrayal of women in art and life. The use of multiple processes and materials emulates the memory and identity formation process, where different and distinct fragments join together to create something new. The figures in these artworks are modeled after Day’s sisters, adding autobiographical tones and personal content.
