Concluding Domestic Spaces

I mentioned a little while ago that Skyler was unveiling a new series of paintings that examined the ways race, class, and nature are configured within the return to “domestic arts.” She’s concluded the series and provided a more formal artist’s statement. You can look at the rest of the paintings and read the statement on her blog. About the title, she says,

I entitled the body of work “Domestic Spaces” which is actually a play on words.  Spaces meaning the physical spaces of our home, but also our social, economic, and racial spaces. And domestic, meaning the domains in which we live. But also, the act of domestication, which is a taming of that which is wild. An assertion of power.
