Looking In

Oil on Canvas and Black Tape
March 2017
Looking In draws from a recurring memory of returning to my home. Windows, traditionally points of access into the life within, provide little insight to the events occurring behind the walls. Returning to this scene holds great significance to me, embodying the fragmentation of relationships within my home. The division of the home into individual paintings and the singular lit window reference the isolation of those inhabiting the space. In this piece, the taped elements do more than provide a frame; they reference the fragility of what holds these separate spaces and those inhabiting them together.
