This work focuses on the dichotomy between the appearance and actuality of one’s home life. The imagery and color pallet allude to unwanted presences and events in my life and illustrate the sharp contrast between the appearance and reality of my home life and every aspect of the work has an important meaning and purpose. My work represents my traumatic childhood and the process of recovery that came from recreating it.
