Suzanne Joyal artist statement:

“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.” Henry David Thoreau

This is a nod to my dorky, daydreaming, introverted, existential 18 year-old self! Henry David Thoreau graced my high school yearbook page, and his words continue to hold a special place in my heart.

The icon of the simple house shape has become a metaphor for me of the secrets and stories hiding inside of a simple, stable, balanced shape: the disparity of what we know and feel versus what others see.

Home is kind and complicated, funny, frustrating, noisy, chaotic, quiet, and peaceful. Home is a rich tapestry of colors and textures and emotions created by the relationships formed inside a house. Join me to discover the colors, textures, layers, words and messages woven inside of the Home and beyond.”
