Cookie Cutter House Project Summary

The Neighborhood 72
The Neighborhood, 2019

I began the Cookie Cutter House Project early in 2018.  Though I have long been obsessed with the image of houses and buildings in my work, the act of relocating added another aspect to my thoughts on the topic of housing and community.  I started to make paintings and artist books on the topic.  I also wrote several blog posts on topics related to housing and local culture. Then it dawned on me that it might be fun and useful to learn what other people consider to be the idea of Home

I invited many art enthusiasts to participate in an on-line exhibition. Each participant was sent a set of identical house shapes measuring approximately 9″ x 6″. Using at least one of those house shapes, the artist depicted her/his idea of What Is Home and wrote a few lines about their thoughts on the topic. Each participant’s entry was then featured on this blog.  All together, 18 artists from different parts of the US and Canada participated.  Links to the individual artist’s posts are below.

In addition to the on-line exhibition, here are links to some of the current work I created for this project. I will add more as they are available.

Here are a few blogposts related to the overall theme of this project, including very early work featuring houses and buildings.
