UMBRA by Julie Renée Jones

Issue 73

As we age our idea of home shifts and changes. Where once we found comfort and familiarity, is replaced by the mythic and foreign environment of a conflicting memory of what our home has become. In the series Umbra I struggle with this notion of the familiar and banal transforming into a world of fantasy and unease. I work with my family members and personal memories to deconstruct what my home was and reconstruct what it has become: a shadow world where the past and present exist in the same space as the real and imagined.
