Lot 0035
Two collages: Untitled (Dog Children) and (Show Girls)
Mixed media
Dog Children: 15" x 21" (framed)
Moira Fain constructs her autobiographical memory collages with 1950s childhood talismans like paper dolls and photographs, conflating the reality of an odd New England upbringing and an imagined stereotypical suburban one. The images she links create a tense push-pull between the disturbing and innocent that is entirely compelling, both visually and emotionally.
