ADD|MIX|FOLD by Nancy Richards Farese

This work is about memory and the stories we tell ourselves. I use photography, collage, and thread to create a visual memoir of growing up in the South in the 60s to re-examine the culture and assumptions of segregation, female identity, and place that I grew up with.

This work is about memory and the stories we tell ourselves. I use photography, collage, and thread to create a visual memoir of growing up in the South in the 60s to re-examine the culture and assumptions of segregation, female identity, and place that I grew up with.

The work is not about improving other people, as much as creating a valid expression of my experience; a reflection, a memoir. ADD|MIX|FOLD comes from a family pound cake recipe, becoming a metaphor for how we mix and fold stories into memory to make sense of ourselves, now. The work is intentionally tactile, handcrafted, to push back on the ephemeral nature of digital and AI generated imagery. These pieces are one of a kind.
