Respite and Renewal: Inside and Out
Our homes are rural, suburban and urban. Time spent in and around them present our daily life patterns while containing greater meaning we often forget. They are places to rest, share and create. We convene with family and friends marking celebrations and engaging our minds. Within these dwellings reliable escape hatches from the world exist in quiet rooms, garages and backyards. The home heeds our call for respite and renewal.
The artworks comprising this exhibition reflect the many desires, feelings and activities in the places we live, both shared and in solitude. They bridge the familiar and ephemeral, reminding us of our reliance on the places we inhabit every day.
