About this project

‘House’ explores a domestic space – the interior of our Glasgow tenement flat. The scale plan of room shapes juxtaposed with a shadow motif of light filtering though a window blind, and a tiny repeating pattern inspired by insides of envelopes. Through repetition and layering, these elements form an ever-shifting backdrop to daily life, building a sense of space lived in, remembered and altered. Vintage handkerchief linen reflects the domestic nature of an intimate interior.
