Abstract

This thesis is intended to further explore themes developed in the thesis exhibition entitled Playing House: Domesticity Gone Awry, on exhibition in Ames, Iowa from March 31 through April 9, 2013. A description of artistic process and themes are explored, as well as art historical references for the works. Hand-colored lithographs comprise the majority of the catalog, and are joined by modern renditions of traditional art of the home, such as embroidery and cross stitching. These methods and mediums are used to emphasize the gap between the way domesticity is viewed as an ideal, and the more ugly realism of our human behavior.
