Portfolio > letters from a domicile

Olin Fine Art Gallery
Washington, PA

What makes a dwelling a home? The exterior structure; furniture and objects within; the value we assign to all of the above?

Even when a house sits gutted and abandoned the presence of the body still lingers. Architectural components carry with them the layered histories of previous residents. These become the shells we leave behind. Relics of habitation and home-making.

Letters from a domicile explores the liminal space between development and deconstruction; contemplating the living and transitional components of home. Castings of banisters and brick walls exist as intimate signatures of the past and semblances of the future. These disassociated architectural fragments illustrate a preservation of sorts, imbedded with the shared histories of multiple lives lived.
