Amy June Bates is interested in stories. Her themes are influenced by her roles as a woman, wife, mother, and professional illustrator. In her series of drawings titled "Checking Out," published as an art book by Ejecta Projects, she considers the role of the female in domesticity as interconnected to consumerism, family, and the isolation of modernity, as well as the impact of domestic convenience on our planet. In her related bodies of work, "Chores" and "Rewilding," she explores the ways we domesticate ourselves and the many personal and environmental costs of domestication.
