The Refuge

This political-spiritual-architectural project began in 2017 with an impossible wish to create refuge for all of the world’s tired and poor, with whom I both empathized and identified. Art, of course, gives one a chance to address the unattainable and non-rational through image-making and contemplation. I soon noticed that my structures felt as much like refugees as they did places of refuge. These house-beings suggested to me that we might find solace and safety within our own broken, defended, worn-out bodies and selves. this exploration continues.

The first few structures are complete, as of 2019. The rest, works in progress.
