Art Papers Magazine;Sep/Oct2001, Vol. 25 Issue 5, p18
The author reflects on the increasing recurrence of domestic themes in contemporary art in the U.S. The author inferred that the use of domesticity in art may be attributed to factors such as modesty of art in the 1990s, the entrance of psychoanalysis into daily life, and the thoughts of artists on issues of home and domesticity. Furthermore, she explored the role of domestic fiction in home-themed art.
