When life gives you lemons


One day you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror and say, “oh God, when did I turn into my mother”? During child rearing years, I would find myself saying the same things my mother said to me growing up. This is a series of work where I honor the Mom’s in our lives. Portraying the Mother figure using antique portraits and found imagery from old catalogs and magazines, she doles out her words of wisdom to us. The collages all incorporate original recipes torn from vintage cookbooks, highlighting the motherly advice that is spelled out in found text applied in a ransom note style.
