Here, winter brings Camellias and time spent indoors. The works chosen for ‘Winter Bloom’ depict domestic spaces and objects that consider identity, desire, and femininity. Carr’s work reflects the liminal space between interior and exterior. The varying shapes and sizes of the sculptures are indicative of their own personalities, like a family constellation—restrained, robust, refined. Graham’s windows teeter between abstract and representational. The paintings explore the visual language of privacy and subjectivity. By leaving room for ambiguity the work remains open to interpretation and embodies the precariousness of the constructs we build around ourselves. From within domestic spaces, Tarver’s paintings address the complexity and invisibility of black female identity throughout history in the American landscape. The work draws parallels between the impulse to look, the desire to own and the yearning to become.
