 Dwellings and the Concept of Home –

TINY HOMES features eighty international illustrators and designers who, through their prints, have explored and challenged our ideas of space: Interiors, exteriors, futuristic, historical, natural or personal. Some of the artwork includes serene hideaways from which to experience the world unchanged by man, methods in which to twist our concepts of what a home can be, close-up views of dwellings where things that exist unseen by the human eye reside, and a means to reflect on what comfort means to each of us. Each and every piece is a comforting and personal vignette that serves as a reminder that there's a "home" out there for all of us. 

You can view the entire collection of artwork on the exhibition gallery here.

About this piece:

Anchoresses were medieval religious recluses. A woman who chose this path would be enclosed, generally for the rest of her life, in a tiny cell adjoining a church where she could devote her days to prayer and contemplation to be closer to God. Through this radical isolation and the rejection of most worldly comforts, an anchoress could hope to unlock a much richer spiritual world and perhaps gain influence in her community and the Church. I chose this subject because I am fascinated by the phenomenon of anchoresses and what it meant to lead such a life.
