‘100 Houses Project’ Mo Hamilton’s art exhibition

The ‘house’ as a symbol captures a full range of our human experience. We can feel connected to our place in the world or dislocated from all that is around us. Mo Hamilton expresses this concept brilliantly in her art show ‘100 Houses Project.’
The prints evoke a relationship both personal and metaphorical. I chose two prints that reach me in this way.


Growth

‘Growth’ offers a vision to bring beauty into the world. We can surround ourselves with what makes us feel alive, in bold ways as sunflowers reaching up to the heavens or like forget-me-nots, equally startling as they reach out far beyond the garden path.

The Bridge

‘The Bridge’ offers a deeper symbol of change. When asked to describe the beginnings of her project, Mo shares an experience when her family was in transition between two places. Packed, ready to move, that night Mo dreamt she lived on a bridge. This captured her imagination, she realized that the house as an image could represent many transitions we face as humans. Thus, the idea for this work was born.

100 Houses Project

One hundred prints surround the walls of the Terrace Art Gallery. Their size and range of expression offer an intimate view of how we encounter ourselves and the outside world. Mo says, ‘Just as in life, there are sad things, loving things, and beautiful experiences. This project embraces the full circumference of what it means to be human.’
