soap opera

Soap Opera is an ongoing series composed of still images from daytime soap operas transformed through the artist’s sculptural frames. The melodrama of the soap opera genre has the power to not only reflect our cultural norms and values, but to shape them as well. The frames are constructed with selective peepholes and mirrored metal panels to conceal and fragment portions of the original scene, potentially inviting the viewer to participate in an exchange of looking. The viewer’s participation is essential, completing the picture through their point of view and imagination. Ultimately, the Soap Opera works manifest television fantasy into physical object in order to explore the act of looking and the desire to see what is hidden.
