For artist Judith Christensen, a home is both a physical object and a backdrop for the complexities of everyday life. Her work features miniature houses and the furniture inside these structures serve as metaphors of our life stories. Because these stories are continually “under construction” throughout our individual lives, the images within this work include maps, construction drawings, dictionaries, children’s books and more. This illustrates the directions, definitions, moral lessons and other means we commonly use to navigate the obstacles we encounter when finding our place in the world. The interaction of memory, experience, place and language is the central theme that brings Judith’s work together.
