Darla Teagarden, ALTARS

"ALTARS is a self portrait series by Darla Teagarden about living with mental illness.

The series has personal roots inspired by her own life and the lives of friends and family members.  She uses Gothic and whimsical imagery which best evoke the bittersweet consequences of living with Clinical Depression and addiction. 

Darla makes her portraits by creating simple structures out of wood, paper and other  familiar materials. These serve abstractly as her ALTARS; A means for communication, protection, ritual and a sense of place. Each image was shot alone in the same 6 foot space. 

The images are black and white format, either faceless or Darla in character. The visual narrative is meant to communicate a common experience and unity. 

ALTARS is also dedicated to Darla’s Grandmother Jean Fay who committed suicide when she was a teenager and her late friend and artist, Nick Bohn. “
