DESCRIPTION

Lacey Terrell’s photo-based mixed media work uses Victorian sensibility and convention as a vehicle to explore identity, the façade and the development of Self within the confines of social expectation.  Largely inspired by Lewis Carroll, she is interested in duality and the notion that things are often not what they seem.  Lepidoptera propriedae is a fictitious Family of butterflies hand-made from photographs of 19th century etiquette texts (among other materials).  What appears to be a collection of butterfly specimens from afar, is actually a collection of rules for prescribed behavior.
