Artist’s Statement Homelessness is one of those social issues you can theorize about, get angry about, and then step away from until you know someone who has been affected by it. A former student of mine, a courageous young man who has overcome all manner of obstacles, came to visit me one winter day. He had been living in his car for several weeks and was near despair. After finding him a place to stay, I asked myself, “What is a larger solution to the problem?” “Home Sweet Home Again” is one answer. And if we artists place the issue in front of a larger audience that can view the work with an open heart, things will begin to change.
