Description: Sutton, MA-based artist Leslie Graff examines the fundamental human experience in her acrylic and mixed media paintings. Her portrait-based series explore individual identity as it is defined by relationships, especially within family settings. Perhaps Graff's best-known series, Domestics considers everyday household activities from a woman's point of view, negotiating personal desires with the expectations outlined by society. She focuses on objects, like desserts or vintage technology, as symbols of our existence and interactions with others.
