     This body of work explore a narrative of modern family secrets influenced by images of domestic social life of the Victorian Era. The concept of family secrets is an implicit but central theme in this work, which guides the construction of the viewer’s narrative between sets of images. In my work, the portraits of constructed bodies represent idealized projections of their social reality, while the still life images represent personal secrets kept within the family reality. Another central concept is the parallels between family dynamics in modern society and the Victorian Era’s visual portrayals of family life in the home. These images are used to speak to each other, creating a conversation between pieces and a narrative. This work brings together these stylistic portrayals of domestic contentment and hidden moral dangers into the one body of work.
