Understanding Identity

southern history

Mixed media southern roots project

I have been working on this project for some time now. I have reclaimed discarded southern history textbooks and done extensive research on my family history. I am attempting to restore/ reclaim my history- the past- my family- and my roots- in an attempt to understand myself and my part in the world in which I live.

Lately most of my art revolves around this concept. Of understanding my place in our culture and history.

I feel that my identity lies beyond any and all of this and yet I cannot help but think that this information is invaluable in understanding my identity.

I was really on the fence on deciding whether or not I was going to include some images of my “Thank You Eve” installation. I installed this piece twice but only have pictures of the first installation. The second time I installed the piece was way better and so I wasn’t so jazzed about putting up the pictures of the first installation. I decided in the end to put up the pictures because I was so happy with the piece overall. I really love the idea behind it and ultimately I want to make a lot more work which reflects this sentiment. The second time I installed this piece was on a very busy night in a small gallery. I stood there watching people as they reacted to it and I really enjoyed how the public responded to this piece.       http://www.annhuskey.com/eve.html

In the past I have been a terrible photographer. I think  my lack of patience may be at fault. Lately, as I have been trying to sell my journals online, I think that my lack of patience has come to bite me. I am working on it though. I spent the morning setting up and taking photos of my journals and I think that the photos I took this morning are a ten-fold improvement to the photos which I have taken in the past.

I just began a new job. Something about this job is motivating me to really work on this blog and to really try and market myself and my art. I think that one thing that I should do is present my art in a way that might relate more to the general populous at large. No, I am not planning on selling out but what I do think that I might do is just be more considerate of presentation to others. I think that this concept as a whole has become something all the more clear and important as I have aged.
