Sarah Hobbs will discuss her body of work in her first Indianapolis exhibition Psychological Traces, currently at the CityWay Gallery curated by Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art (iMOCA).
Hobbs’ images are about the psychological space created by the compulsions and neurotic tendencies of human behavior. She photographs carefully constructed tableaus of domestic environments where common objects, arranged to excess, are evidence of irresistible impulses that plague human behaviors such as perfectionism, obsessive compulsiveness and social phobias. While humorous and haunting, these scenes of domestic life suggest that our most comfortable spaces can be the place of the most uneasiness.
Hobbs lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia and received a BFA in Art History and an MFA in Photography from the University of Georgia, Athens. Her work is in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Columbus Museum of Art (GA), Brooklyn Museum of Art, Museum of Fine Arts (Houston), Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Photography (Chicago), and the High Museum of Art (Atlanta).
