"With the work in Houses and Homes, Insides and Outsides I consider the conflict and harmony of spaces both real and psychological created by the people who were a part of my own early growth and through the very literal placement of a house on or around a body. I invite you to enter with you mind the spaces provided the same way you would a dollhouse, to arrange and configure the space to your needs, and also to respond to the limitations they present." ~Bailey M. Chick
