Description

Sarah Hobbs believes that we are all beautifully flawed. After researching human behavior such as phobias and obsessive compulsive activity Hobbs constructs domestic scenes in her Atlanta home, which doubles as her studio. Denial, gifted through the Atlanta Celebrates Photography auction, is drawn from her series Small Problems in Living, where the work ranges in subject from claustrophobia to vanity. Multiplied objects clutter the sterile, carefully arranged rooms and characterize the neuroses and mental disorders. Though there is space for an occupant in each photograph one never appears, thus allowing the viewer to consider whether it is he or she that belongs in the scene.
