Lost Homes

Artist Statement

The involuntary loss of a home, in peacetime or war, is a painful experience. Home is where we can be ourselves and private, where we can afford to be vulnerable, and where we gain strength to be in the world.

Discrimination, economic hardship, ethnic cleansing, genocide, war, famine and natural causes have sent people searching and begging for new places to live. These migrations have reshaped the world, politics and societies over and over again. Sometimes, those changes are accompanied by hope, other times by despair.

Everyone needs a home, and those without them suffer horribly.
