CONSTRUCTED MEMORY: LINET SANCHEZ GUTIERREZ

Linet Sanchez Gutierrez investigates memory through the construction and photography of models. These quaint, finely crafted architectural interiors are not renditions of specific places; they are structures built from sensory input, emotion residue, and personal experience. Much like memory itself, each maquette Gutierrez builds is a construct or amalgamation of her lived experience.

Photographs: Gary Monroe

Photographs, provides a glimpse into a number of communities that add to the character of this place and this mentality that we call Florida. From the Old World Jews who populated South Beach Miami, to Haitian resettlement camps, to the tourist visiting Disney, and the very landscapes that these cities and communities are built upon. Monroe has spent his life capturing little moments that reflect bigger ideas. The locations and characters in these photographs vary widely, and are taken from over 30 years worth of Monroe's photographic pursuits. However, each image was composed, captured, and is imprinted with Monroe's signature style.

IMPRINTED: CARLOS BETANCOURT

This exhibition features a range of printed media including traditional mediums as well as imagery printed on acrylic, vinyl, and wallpaper installed within the space. This diverse and experimental roster of medium illustrates how Betancourt’s image making need not be contained by traditional framing and installation techniques. Further, this technique reinforces the primacy of concept over technique.

A house is not a home: Brooke Didonato

“A House is Not a Home” is a series of self-portraits conveying feelings of isolation and discontent experienced when returning to my hometown in Ohio. The character in this series acts as a hyper-feminine version of myself, exploring an alternate reality where I coexist with a suburban backdrop, yet struggle to psychologically acclimate to gender roles often found in a nuclear family structure.
