"The ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned".
I have always been fascinated with how people live and the spaces in which they occupy.
Having lived in older dwellings, I have an inherent sense of those that proceeded my inhabitance. How was their everyday life? How did current affairs affect their living situation? What kinds of ceremonies, entertainment, relationships, superstitions and philosophies occupied the space? What did they wear? Were they happy? Were there secret relationships? All walls contain secrets.
This is what I think when I ponder the outer walls of an architectural masterpiece or the simplest of dwellings.
Everyone has the right to their own dwelling but It's up to you/me/them to make it a home.
The "Casa" series was influenced by my trips to Portugal and Colombia.
These renderings are imaginings from my head; the influence of where I'd been and how I felt in those spaces.
