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.
