Emanations of the House, 2012. Ink and gesso on linen, 14”x18.” This recent work is based on House on a table, a drawing I did when I was about nine years old, of a woman in medieval costume, standing near a low table with a house on it. It’s an homage to the richness of my childhood imagination and to the responsibilities of maintaining family histories that mean something to me.
