The series entitled Domesticity is an extension of my examination
of urban sprawl and the American suburb. This series of work was inspired
by conversations with my Grandmother about the role of women and the suburbs
during the 1940s and 1950s. My Grandmother moved into a typical
Cape-Codder in Levittown while my mother was a toddler in the early 1950s.
Levittown is viewed by many as the predecessor to the modern American
suburb. Silkscreening on uniform plexiglass constructions enabled me to
mimic the repetition of cheaply built, mass-produced homes found in many
new housing developments. This series extended to explore the relationships
between suburban lifestyles and the machines and appliances that populate
our homes as seen in the collaboration, Yellow Wallpaper.
