Minna Resnick

Communication is elusive, dependent on historical and cultural contexts.  One generation's verbal and visual mundane may be opaque to another generation.  My work interrogates inter-generational expectations and realities through the romanticized prism of illustrated early- and mid-twentieth century manuals on home management, décor, repair, health, education and etiquette.  It uses actual text from these sources for conception and provides the title for the work.
