The Make.Shift Project’s Virtual Gallery presents “Home-Sick,” a reflection of domesticity, the homes we carry in our hearts, and the objects that create our material worlds. Opening day for the virtual gallery will be on February 5th, at 6 pm.
Make.Shift is proud to feature work from Ellie Bacchus, Corinne Barber, Neil Berkowitz, Lindsay Breidenthal, and Mackenzie Carter.
Ellie Bacchus: My paintings explore themes of memory, nostalgia, childhood, and the difficulties of growing up. In the works, I present a personal history, with some of my own belongings starring in the compositions alongside universal objects.
Corinne Barber: Throughout the labors of sewing and transporting, my pieces develop flaws like holes, inconsistencies, and hanging threads. Rather than removing these elements to refine the piece, I choose to include them, or if I do mend or alter them, I do so in an incredibly visible way. This process is meant to mimic the imperfections and inconsistencies that exist within human life, and to illustrate the beauty there is in learning and changing as a result of lived experience.
Neil Berkowitz: Where does one place cease to be solely itself? How do we build connections between one place and another? Where does one place end and another begin? What is the nature of an individual’s place memories? What would they look like if we could see them?
Lindsay Breidenthal: Marvin had it right when he said that we’re all sensitive people – how we respond to changes in our environment says so much about ourselves and reveals our connection to each other. I hope to convey something honest and familiar about my own experience so it has an effect on yours.
Mackenzie Carter: Mackenzie’s interior illustrations study living spaces where friends and family of hers resided through the initial lockdown of COVID-19. The illustrations have a human quality both in their content and painting style but are void of the people who inhabit them.
