“Used:” is an exploration and meditation on the life of objects long after they are discarded. The presence of trash in our backyards, city alleyways and homes, easily melt into the background of daily over stimulation. Upon slowing down, noticing and cataloging these items, Grace began to explore the relationship between trash and perceived beauty. This body of work is the result of that relationship as it pertains to fashion, urban landscape and spaces both quiet and populated. Grace is inspired by the concept of revisiting familiar, routine spaces and processing them slowly and intentionally. The outcome is a series of the recycling of not only objects but ideas, colors, memories and moments we might not assign meaning to if we did not stop to truly see them.
