Tiana Graves : capstone
The artist's statement: This series of photographs emanates from my observations of home interiors photographed during the midst of an estate sale. Often times, rooms, filled with decades worth of collections and personal belongings, are progressively fragmented and sold while I work. The images comment on the passage of time in regard to the object and how that object becomes a relic and represents eras of a life. The photographs conserve memory of places and times not of my own. They are attempts to highlight my connection to these places while seeking ways to preserve what is left of them.
