In the top left room, the focus is on the security cameras that were placed around my childhood home. The room is meant to give the impression that someone has been there recently monitoring the events in the home. This room deals directly with lingering anxieties that growing up in a constantly monitored environment caused.
This work focuses on the dichotomy between the appearance and actuality of one’s home life. The imagery and color palette 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.
