LAUNDRY

By: Lizzie Thibodeau

In the fall of 2018 I was able to pursue my MFA.  This had been a dream of mine since I graduated with my BFA, but many obstacles deterred me for over 10 years.  When I created the Shadow Boxes it became clear that I needed to make my dream a reality.  I really wanted to challenge myself by working beyond the 2D plane.  I wanted to utilize the work I do with young adults and weave that into new work.  Within my practice and career, I use my experiences to help navigate life, sharing experiences with others to find common ground and conversation.  I experimented with lint, dryer sheets, and family photographs.  I am looking to capture the idea of time and process, by utilizing these items.  This first phase was truly experimental and in my practice I need to produce a lot of work in order for me to see the successful direction.
