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.
