Portfolio > Drawings

A personal narrative is weaved throughout these drawings as they are created from family photographs, or ones taken of places I’ve come to define as home. However, they don’t contain people allowing the viewer to fill in their own contemplations and memories, becoming unanimous ambiguous spaces. The front porch from my childhood home easily converts into the one from the viewer’s favorite vacation home. Kitchen chairs morph into a streetlight, an inside nook blends into part of a baseball stadium. These spaces are meant to arouse feelings of comfort and security, reminding the viewer of the various homes (and makeshift ones) they’ve occupied over the years. They simultaneously evoke the anxiety and conflict associated with the notion of home.
