“Hausfrau Collections: Routine, Ritual, and Magic is a mixed media exhibition of new work by Jamie M. Speck. In this series, Speck turns commonplace domestic items into captivating objects, garments and backdrops. Hausfrau Collections is a reassessed reality where routine and ritual transform the mundane and conjure the magical.
Jamie M. Speck is a Texas-based mixed media artist, whose inspiration is as varied as her materials—it is found in her every day experiences, routines, and environment. Her work often incorporates domestic inspired elements and techniques, such as hand-stitching, as well as the utilization of beeswax and other non-traditional materials.
“As a person who fills many roles—housewife, parent, artist—my work is suffuse with everyday monotonous routines. I celebrate notions of domesticity by turning the ordinary into the fantastical, routine into ritual. Instead of relying on traditional art materials for this body of work, I construct autobiographical assemblages—my Hausfrau Collections—objects and household waste garnered through quotidian routine.”
– Jamie M. Speck.”
