"Oh, Like in Brazil..." original artwork by Autumn Young Oliveira
My husband loves to remind me of his home land, no matter how proud he is to live in the United States. What I originally thought was irritating and unpatriotic has become an endearing and enticing habit. I realized that his stories are part of who is and a manifestation of how he understands his world to be. He taught me that living in another's understanding is a unique and exciting experience.
It is this story telling that is the base of my work. Putting a fresh perspective on the nominal and routine is what inspires me. Much of my work never seems to come from my own experiences, but rather those stories that entice a day dream or a nostalgic memory. My hope is that my work will find a place in your mind to do the same…
