A desire of recent work by Los Angeles-basically based artist Hannah Lupton Reinhard. Having grown up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood with numerous assumed and normalized social expectations, Reinhard’s work would possibly maybe perchance also be considered as an interrogation of her relationship to her have lineage — an try to grapple with issues admire what it ability to be a ‘advantageous Jewish girl’ or feelings of being concurrently ‘too Jewish’ and ‘no longer Jewish ample.’ As she states:
“Judaism is a performative faith that relies deeply on the generational handing-down (L’dor v’dor) of traditions throughout a neighborhood. It is a faith of account-telling that has maintained itself thru the repetition of narratives, and the rituals that stretch with them. It is a culture that relies on humor to take care of outmoded histories, and fabricate fresh ones.
By the depiction and repetition of ritual objects, I select my work to over-effect and exaggerate Jewish rituals, while concurrently hiding their Jewishness, burying it in coloration, pattern, ornament, and femininity. And by an over-efficiency of femininity–hair, lips, eyes, hands–I select to teeter between the lines of ugliness and style, the precise and the unreal, memory and pictures, heavy-handedness and delicacy. I witness to depict the Jewish girl as mischievous yet nurturing, natty yet upsetting, appealing yet irregular, nearly admire a siren or fairy or other-worldly creature… I select to power the viewer to dig past the preliminary build of bait, the gleaming raise out, and internet the advanced, exhausting-to-announce feelings.”
