PHOTO BOOK
The Home Sweet Home series combines images of suburban homes with embroidered home-related phrases on domestic materials such as bed sheets and wallpaper. The resulting images are intrinsically sad and fragile on the one hand, but decidedly funny, even quaint, on the other. The miniature scale provides an intimate view of homes that have been given great care and attention while simultaneously being put under some sort of duress.
Something to Write Home About, 8 x 7 inches, acrylic on bed sheet with embroidery, 2004. (sold)
