Meg aubrey

Meg Aubrey’s work examines the iconic suburban environment and its effects on the individuals who inhabit it. Her subjects are pared down and scrutinized to reveal a disquieting psychological isolation present within these seemingly idyllic planned communities.  Meg Aubrey has a MFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design.  She is an Assistant Professor of Art at Texas A&M University Corpus Christi.



Can place and its surroundings dictate how people dress, think and behave? I act as a viewer within my own community to analyze the behaviors of the residence and record the activities and emotions that I see. The planned communities of suburbia have become my laboratory where I scrutinize daily activities and behaviors, asking questions about how this chosen lifestyle can rob people of their individualism under the facade of beauty, order and security.  My work examines a society that has created an army of followers desperate to portray their lives as perfect, controlled and successful while hiding the realities and complexities of daily modern existence.
