Homes come in all shapes and sizes, and mean something different to the people who live in them. A home can be a shelter where one feels protected, or it can be used a metaphor for a place where the heart is, as the saying goes. Australian artist Catherine O’Donnell explores the different variety and tone of urban dwellings like homes in her largescale charcoal drawings. Her images are typically drawn in high contrast, with a focus on the interesting visual aspects of places like the public housing estates of her “Notion of Home” series, or the back alleys of Venice, Italy in “Venetian Visions”.
