Wearing Myself Out

Self Portrait, 18x22in. oil on primed cotton t-shirt

April 2020.

Modeled by the artist.

This piece was prompted by a change in location as institutions began to close due to Covid-19. The move required a change in medium and materials due to lack of studio access. Thus the recycling of the shirt felt apropriate. It is a self-portrait on a worn button up, and is still wearable, making it a live, performative piece when worn.

This piece was done for the exhibition

EXTANT: Liminal Narratives, Lived Histories

The show featured 5-College students from the 5-College Advanced Studio Seminar, and works were installed in the Janotta Gallery at Smith College. The exhibition centered around the theme of "archives" and what kinds of recollections of history are kept. Artists made work about the homes and histories held in physical places, numbers, in routines, clothing, cultural aesthetics, and comics.
