Daisy Patton 

Patton's work centers on the idea of memory, identity, and loss. Who do we choose to portray, remember, and how? These ideas are fraught terrain that cross family relationships, how we represent in front of the camera, how our identities are perceived by the viewer depending upon social context, and public and private memorialization. The artist collects abandoned family photographs from around the world spanning the Victorian era to the 1960's, enlarges them to life-size, and paints over them to breathe new life into the sitters.  She removes the individuals from their static location in time, reconsidering their newfound existence in 21st-century contemporary life.
