This piece deals with domestic environment and references wallpaper, carpeting and textiles etc.  While not presenting a neat and tidy environment it is the references to the efforts to create one that supply much of the content of the piece.  I have been working with a lot of personal narrative that has involved a dramatic mid-life, years -long battle with my own ideas and ideals of domesticity, womanhood, and motherhood.  Interwoven with loss and guilt are elements of an archetypal journey and an ambiguous heroisms- a bit tormented and tarnished but true.
