domestic / theme
A sense of belonging and comfort accompanies the domestic: a microcosmos that radiates warmth, safety, and calm. Within the space enclosed by domestic are events, thoughts, and emotions that are elsewhere inarticulable. Secrets are sanctioned, language shifts away from its social mode; the imagery of the inner being unfolds. The domestic may seem easily contained, yet the limbs of its influence reach far beyond the obvious confines.
Themes represent basic categories of thought, emotion, or value. While our assignment of themes may at times seem arbitrary or whimsical, they serve to link together artists and movements along non- hierarchial pathways. Follow the themes to look for new disciplines that share qualities with those you already like, or to open up new worlds of Art and Culture.
