My work starts with the “home”, the dense suburban environment I was raised in, and the city I live in currently. The essence of intimacy and abstraction of the sociological home is what I debate. The molding of an individual, the formation (interior/exterior) of a home, and the shaping of a landscape all have common ideals in our society. I am exploring our understanding of home, domestic comforts, and objects, as well as introducing personal subject matter. - Jenna Wright
