Photographic tableaus of everyday life from family albums are reimagined in dreamy watercolor portraits. Relational identity is a theory that individuals are influenced and formed by their surroundings and the people they interact with. Playing with the definition of relational identity, Willis is essentially crafting portraits of herself through images of family. The artistic process and finished pieces evoke memory and nostalgia within the artist and the viewer. www.kbwillis.com Image credit: Amy Pleasant, Album 54, Laundry Day
