Domestic Bliss illustrates love, labor and loss. Love is evident in the gathering and preparation for the family. Labor is necessary in the domestic situation whether it is enacted by the members or hired persons. Loss by absence or death is always a part of domestic life. Here it is represented by the fallen chair. It is a statement about families and their connection to nature. The nest is perched on the family table which rests in the laps of the member symbolized by the chairs. The table holds items that speak to our day to day lives. The items are created from nature's holdings. Each plate contains an item from an animal (egg), item form the sea (oyster shells) and an item from a plant (leaf). This is a statement of our dependence on nature. A Chandelier of branches hangs above with knives that warn of pain.
