The Autobiography of Marie Reid, Family Album 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

inkjet prints, 2014, 22"w x 12"h (each)

The series of photographs entitled The Autobiography of Marie Reid is part of a larger installation project that investigates personal history. I have degraded the images to the point of anonymity so that they stand as archetypes of a universal family. I am interested in personal identity and how it is formed by our relationships with family. This project investigates memory and how our ties to our families are based on shared memories. Another reason that these nostalgic images are blurred is to represent the way that events recede in our memory as time passes.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
