Rawlings takes the experience of growing up in suburban North Dallas as a jumping off point to examine the role of cultural institutions such as school and church on an adolescent sense of identity. Normalizing influences are evidenced in everything from the artist’s high school yearbook page, (enlarged as a giant wall tapestry), to playing Mary as a teenager in the Nativity pageant.
