Beginning with memories from direct experiences, Gidwitz's work delves into the complex undercurrents of intimate relationships. It focuses on notions of home, family, illusions of safety, consumption, fetish, taboo, as well as sexual and emotional power dynamics. In an attempt to examine resonances of contradiction and harmony within our dearest connections, the paintings, ink drawings, and rope pieces try to address broader social structures of race, gender, sexuality, class, and religion.
