DESCRIPTION


In our back gallery, Tony Favarula trains his eye on the domestic. Through juxtaposing portraits of family with images of his home’s interior, the photographs speak to the “physical and psychological effects of social interaction…manifested within the comfort of one’s own home.” Favarula reenacts everyday moments and through his use of light and extreme scale the stripped-down recollections have clear allusions to 19th century realist painting.
