Wax poetic

The ethereal quality of these photo prints by Dorothy Imagire makes them similar to half-forgotten memories: memories of objects and the stories that surround them. Imagire has taken prints of everyday kitchen objects and covered them with wax to give them a distant and timeless look. An enticing touch to your kitchen, this work comes in two parts that work well on their own, but form a rich narrative if displayed together. These pieces come ready-to-hang or can be placed on flat surfaces. Handmade in Connecticut. Sold individually.

Dorothy Imagire

Dorothy Imagire was born in Japan and lived in Chicago, Guam, Iran, Italy, and Virginia while still a child. Her work reflects the myriad memories she developed growing up, drawing on images of artifacts as well as her own identity. She is a mixed media artist whose exhibitions range from the New Museum and Parsons in New York City to the Long Beach Museum of Art in California and many places in between, including the Houston Center of Photography in Texas. She has won numerous awards for her art since graduating from RISD in 1990 with an MFA in photography.

She says that if she weren't an artist, she would have to have an antique shop. She's an avid collector of vintage appliances such as electric fans, old twin-lens reflex cameras, and analog typewriters. She says that she's always going to flea markets and estate sales to hunt for more everyday artifacts.
