INTERIORS OF QU(i)E(t)ER DOMESTICITY

We continue within. I look within the space my husband and I cohabitate.  Both a place of comfort and safety we take refuge from the outside. What does that look like, this miniature world inside, and what rests beyond each door or corridor?  The light shifts, and the objects we adore rest upon a mantel or table leaving remnants of our shared lives and the symbols they represent.  When there is so much to fear, we care for each other and those in our family. This series offers solace for the stresses and anxiety that come knocking on our doors.
