Homatorium (on-going)

 

An ongoing series that grew out of two years of travel and research into architecture's light, air and openness movement and a rooted interest in home as asylum and healer. The paintings are a result of splicing and combining photographs I took during site visits to Richard Neutra's VDL Research House (Los Angeles), the Zonnestraal 

Sanatorium (Netherlands), the Williamsburg Houses (Brooklyn) and vintage images from the Neutra Architectural firm (with thanks to Cal-Poly University's ENV Archives-Special Collections). The project is ever broadening, relevant and open ended as opportunities for site-visits are made possible and as people continue to search for a sense of safety and hope.
