"A home is a place of origin, family and comfort. A house is the structure that's symbolic of a home, a facade. Houses conceal the realities of a home and the people who inhabit them. Houses represent the euphoria and nostalgia of family, capturing a story or dream of childhood and life. This dream of stability, well-being, and serenity that a home should embody can be hindered by a dysphoric, neglectful reality. My work embraces this contrast of euphoria and dysphoria, dream vs reality. My work also addresses the discontentment of family due to abuse and neglect, as a house’s facade disintegrates, revealing the realities of a dwelling."
