Aimee Gilmore's latest body of work is a result of her recent discoveries in motherhood. The works are a collection of imagery and objects that reflect the process of archiving a routine (like breastfeeding) through its most essential material and highlights the communication between mother and child through abstraction. It is through this collection that Gilmore begins to viscerally relate the abstract nature of motherhood to the unpredictable nature of breast milk, a material that exposes and emphasizes the necessity of letting go. Gilmore seeks a more thorough and vivid understanding of her own labor as mother by making works from the generative processes of her own body.
