“to be seen and not heard”

Iowa-based artist T.J. Dedeaux-Norris grew up on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, and moved away to pursue her career, leaving her detached from her family. Her feelings of isolation only intensified after Hurricane Katrina hit the region. The artworks in to be seen and not heard are Dedeaux-Norris’s way of connecting her past with her present as she approaches portraiture through the lens of distance and longing.
