House, drawings

Ink on paper

2014 - 2016 

These 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 separated spaces which 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 – Similar to the way we experience the ever shifting, complex, material yet ephemeral world in which we exist.
