The work is a bridge to home. This body of work explores melancholy in the domestic space, using the process of painting to create quiet moments of introspection. The work responds to my inner conflict of home and belonging, using the domestic space to evoke feelings of love, loss, isolation and melancholy. The imagery contains recurring motifs of sleep, items of clothing and domestic items to create a quiet and contemplative atmosphere.
