JANE SZABO – Somewhere Else
October 26 – December 5, 2021

Reception: Sunday, November 7, 4-6pm

“The series Somewhere Else maps an emotional route of exploration and escape. When I am here, I want to be there. Yet once I get there, I am left to wonder if this place answers or fulfills my quest. Somewhere Else features simply made homes covered in a wide array of maps, photographed in natural settings and within architectural interiors. The maps that cover these homes do not reflect the location of the image, but rather lead back to places I explored as a child or long to escape to in the future.

Evocative of the journey of life, of the visceral impact of that longing to be “somewhere else,” each work examines where we dwell literally and spiritually. It is always about the journey, the search for that place we truly want to call home. The search is symbolic of a deeper, inner search; that sensation of running away from or running to a vast “other.” Somewhere Else explores a yearning for home, or a sense of place, that one cannot return to, no longer exists, or maybe never was.”
