Artwork description

Alexia McKindsey's work reflects on how our homes affect collective identities and mythologies spanning the generations of a family. The progression of time is embodied in collaged fragments, which reflect on the legacy of past generations. The layers offer a cure for our curiosity, inviting us into peaceful scenes, which are all connected by the theme of food. Due to the nonlinear representations of memory, space, and experience, we can fully appreciate the strong familial narrative behind this work.

Artist statement:

Alexia McKindsey's practice derives from the spaces she's lived in; spaces rich in familial narrative, heritage, and history. She is interested in the way our homes reflect the collective identity and mythologies spanning the generations of a family. Pulling from the physical facades, archives, and relics found in these spaces, she maps out the physical progression of time and tradition that have passed through these dwellings. Incorporating painted collaged fragments and craft-based processes allows for the embodiment of the whole of the archives she's collected along the way and for reflection on the legacies of the generations that have come before her and that have helped form her identity. Contrasting and combining these elements allow for nonlinear and cyclical representations of memory, space, and experience spanning multiple eras and members of a family.
