"In Elements and Artifacts, Tracey Litt brings her keen eye to images both familiar and foreign in the most personal of spaces, our homes. These images fall into two categories: the elements that make up the structure of the home and the artifacts that inform us about its inhabitants. Through Litt's lens, inanimate objects communicate with us. The parts of the house are anthropomorphized. We are able to see the odd beauty of peeling layers of wallpaper or a crumbling chimney flue; a laundry basket of shoe forms becomes an architectural achievement; decaying plaster and lathe evoke a sense of mystery and nostalgia; a power outlet conveys a sense of humor. Litt captures tableaux throughout the house, from the mundane to the whimsical to the perverse, giving us insight into the history of the home and the character of the people who dwell within it. Nothing, it seems, is without meaning or commentary. With compassion and humor, Litt skillfully reframes our view of our surroundings, our lives, and our selves." - Thalia Tringo, President - Thalia Tringo & Associates Real Estate
