Home from Home Series: The borders that outline our everyday space are fuzzier than ever. People today are experiencing a complete disruption of normalcy; the line between work and leisure is completely blurred. Our familiar peace is disrupted by elements of chaos – things are no longer what they seem. What if home sweet home isn't so sweet. What if  the life behind those walls hold dangerous, scary things or doesn't exist at all.  Many people hope that their home lives will be a relaxing refuge from work and the world, but for lots of people isolation, loneliness, emotional detachment, and anxiety dominate this landscape. These works explore the emotional life of the home in all of its permutations.
