Ink on paper
2014 - 2016
The drawings question the politics of home as a place of confinement, refuge, work and play and the tensions of wanting to get far away from these conflicting requirements. The drawings illustrate a psychological development, illustrated metaphorically with a surreal, unrealistic ideal of Architecture.
The buildings show two separate spaces each belonging to its own commitment while considering the memories derived from the core dwelling space. A pathway of stairs elevates the sanctuary that leads down to the fertile ground. This visual representation reflects our experience of the ever-shifting, complex, and ephemeral world we inhabit.
The artwork encourages contemplation of the conflicting demands that exist within the concept of home and challenges the viewer to consider their own relationship with this complex and multifaceted notion.
