A group exhibition of contemporary and historical paintings looks at ideas of home from the perspective of artists working from the 1920s to the present. Featuring gallery and invited artists, and with a focus on depictions of houses and other dwelling places, House Work reflects a diversity of physical structures – from lone houses surrounded by nature, to buildings in urban and suburban settings. Equally, the exhibition gives rise to thoughts of home as a social construct, idea or state of mind.
