In 2006, photographer Chris Ireland started to take photos of the ordinary daily minutia surrounding his mother, father, and brother who still resided in the same home he grew up in on 8867 Edgehill Road. Initially, observing his family’s routine felt like a comforting exercise in nostalgia, as the artist had struggled to define himself the first few years away from home. In 2016, Ireland returned home more often not long after an accident that left his mother permanently brain damaged. The images in this series are moments in time, separated by 10 years that show the daily patterns and rhythms of life that do not necessarily change, but adapt to alterations in the family dynamic.
Ordinary Time by Chris Ireland will open to public at Fort Worth Community Arts Center on April 6, 2018, through April 28, 2018. Opening reception will be on April 6, 2018; 6-9pm. For more information about this exhibition, please visit http://www.fwcac.com/?exhibition_detail/5756
