Heart/Homes have text written in Velvet Underglaze and stains
As women, we carry the seeds or genetic information of our ancestors. What obligations do we have towards them? As women, we often feel pressured into childbearing and rearing from our families. What are the benefits? What price is paid in terms of personal accomplishments? Is the trade-off worth the price?
Each of the ancestors or greatmothers rides a memory home. These Heart/Homes are covered in text that record memories from specific homes. The figurine scale of the greatmothers is familiar and doll-like, but disturbing.
