“This is Home” is a series of interviews and paintings by me, architect|artist Jane Sloss. My interest in home and how we depict home began many years ago with a painting my great-grandmother made of my Grandmother’s childhood home. This painting on ceramic hung on the wall in my Grandparents' dining room and I was always very curious about it. In my current painting work, I find myself particularly curious about the ethereal idea of home (what feels like home) and how that relates to a physical place. Through this series, I am interviewing residents across the Chicago and making paintings of their homes. I have chosen in particular to interview people who are long-time residents of Chicago and to create paintings, which reflect what feels special about these homes to their inhabitants.
