Monique Doyle - Remnants

GSU graduate student Monique Doyle will be exhibiting her thesis work August 2 – August 12, 2010. Reception on August 12, 2010 from 5-8pm.

Doyle’s series of work “Remnants” captures the remnants of once habited structures and discarded personal possessions. The images are a documentary of neighborhoods, homes and personal possessions that were once a part of a full and functioning life, now left as part of the present landscape. These “Remnants” have become part of the landscape due to our present economic recession, and shows the deprivation of land and life.

Doyle’s collection of images includes businesses and homes whose inhabitants are now just “Remnants” of past time. Doyle’s intent was to document areas such as Harvey, Illinois as well as the southeast side of Chicago. The facades of the buildings no longer have any redeeming qualities; they simply exist as an eyesore to most passer-byes. Doyle’s images are the scars that are left due to the harsh economic times these areas endured.

Monique Doyle is a Graduate from Governors State University with her BA in the Board of Governors and is working towards a Master of Arts from Governors State University in University Park, Illinois. Monique Doyle currently resides in Harvey, IL.
