Spirit House (San Phra Phum) No. 1, 2016 - Original Acrylic Painting, Framed

Acrylic on paper.
Painting is 5 x 7 inches

Included white frame is 10 7/8 x 8 7/8 inches.

This is the premier work of the Spirit House series which began in late 2016. Inspired by 'san phra phum' (Thai: ศาลพระภูมิ), or spirit houses, which are shrines to a protective spirit of a place. These houses provide a shelter for spirits that would otherwise cause problems for locals if not appeased. I am very interested in the idea of what a human being calls a home, and what certain people deem an appropriate abode for an abstract idea or form. How do we create the idea of "home" for ourselves? For our pets? For friendly spirits?
