The Hereditary Estate by Daniel W. Coburn

January 16 @ 10:00 am - March 21 @ 9:00 pm
Mulvane Art Museum,
1700 SW College Avenue, Topeka, KS 66621 United States

Daniel W. Coburn’s work investigates the family photo album employed as a visual infastructure for the American Dream. His photographs explore the dark undercurrents of his own family history. However, these lyrical, poetic and sometimes mysterious images present a set of characters that become icons of universal human experience. He uses portraiture, landscape, and still life images as metaphors to describe people that exist at the intersection of domestic duress and spirituality.
