Making a home, whatever through physical renovation or an internal sense of comfort, remains a constant, universal issue for many women. In an atmosphere of perceived external threats to safety and security, the home takes on more importance; it is a source of calm and refuge, but it is also a place that is often overly decorated, orderly to the point of perfection, and excessive as an expression of woman’s status. As a woman artist, I am addressing the double edge of domesticity; the home provides comfort but can also be place where embellishment can substitute for internal ills, or hide personal truths.
