  encouraged to unnaturally alter her appearance for perceived social advantages.
Other more direct contempla- tions on the notion of home are included in the exhibition as well, many inspired by the extreme isolation of the early months
of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Brandy Eve Allen, Kate Barbee, Phoebe Boswell, Sophia Narrett, and Greg Scott all present works that look at the way our domestic space shifted dramatically once it became a place of isolation rather than respite, as we all moved into lockdown in 2020. Boswell created a series of paintings that captured
a factory outside her window at different times of day, offering her relief from the monotony of being trapped inside. Brandy Eve Allen looked to the outside world as well, asking members of her community to pose for portraits at the height of quarantine. The resulting body of photographs features people stand-
San Luis Obispo
ing alone in their home, with a light on, capturing the aching isolation of the time.
Taken together the works in Home/Work offer a multitude of perspectives on home and our relationship to the outside world. In doing so, the exhibition invites visitors to take the works as a starting point to think about their own domestic spheres, and the care and challenges we all face in those spaces.
Chiffon Thomas is also present- ing a workshop on Jan 18, 2023 from 4-6 p.m.
The Home/Work exhibit is pre- sented by Trust Automation, with additional support provided by Barbara Renshaw, Hotel SLO, KSBY and the City of San Luis Obispo.
