This house disturbs me.
It has appeared in the backdrop of several of my images. It pops up uninvited; a harsh angular shape amongst gentle curves. Its very presence offends my nature. It is not a home to me. It is hard and unforgiving and unwelcoming, whereas a home is life, warmth and softness.
This house is a square piece within the rounded pieces that have become this collage. And yet my collages themselves are always based inside – attempting to break out of – a square image.
A round piece in a square hole?
A rounded person in a square whole?
That’s me all over…
